Improving awareness in and around the leisure centre’s by training staff and customers as Dementia Friends and providing literature and sign-posting.

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

 Developing pool based activities – reviewing existing programmes to see a working model.
