Slow Shopping provides a welcoming and safe environment within a dedicated time for anyone who needs to take more time to do their shopping. It is inclusive and caters for the elderly, those with dementia and those who suffer from visible, invisible or intellectual disabilities.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
I am developing a project called Slow Shopping, this is about giving people time and compassion so that they can do their shopping. Through this project I want to make a difference to people’s lives directly.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Lack of commitment to being Dementia Friendly, fear of dementia or lack of time to do the training.
Dementia Friends Champion
Attend a Dementia Friends Champion course so that I deliver the sessions to participating stores.
Deliver the Dementia Friends information session as part of the Slow Shopping programme.
Ensure continued support for the local Dementia Alliance, through attending meetings, links with Slow Shopping through promoting the logo and the organisation.
