We are working with the Alzheimer's Society to raise awareness and understanding of dementia issues through events such as Memory Walk, and talks
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Securing sufficient attendance at events to make them viable, and working with local coommunity groups to talk about dementia
