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?

To work alongside local organisations to help raise awareness of Dementia within the local community and to help where we can by offering activities that everyone can relax and enjoy.

We will review the effectiveness of our outcomes annually through both feedback and looking back at the success of events over the past year to assess whether we’ve offered what people were expecting and wanted.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Funding will have to be sourced to make activities affordaable for all.

2. Actions

  • Staff and volunteers within the Studio to become Dementia Friends
