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?

Our social enterprise partnership has been formed to improve the supply of quality, attractive and beneficial products for disabled and older people. Once our website (www.enabledforlife.co.uk) has been launched in August we will be stocking and actively promoting products on a national basis that assist individuals with dementia as well as their carers.

We will be raising awareness of matters relating to dementia through the News section of our website. This will help improve the sharing of and access to useful knowledge.

We will be making regular contributions from profits to charities such as Alzheimer's Society. We are also committed to sponsoring inspiring disabled individuals to achieve their potential in life.

As an employer we will actively encourage applications from disabled staff and those that need flexible employment to assit with any caring needs. We want staff to feel supported, valued and part of a caring environment.

Both founding partners of the partnership have first hand experience of caring for a loved one with dementia and will be striving to improve the quality of life for all those affected by it where we can.

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

The challenges will include overcoming personal obstables such as caring for loved ones with dementia while running a social enterprise. They will also include making our website accessible for those with disabilities. We will overcome these challenges through effective technology and communication underpinned by a relentless resolve to improve the life of those affected by dementia and other disabilities.
