We are contracted by Metro to provide accessible transport for those people who would ordinarily be unable to travel to appointments, go shopping or simply engage with other people.

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?
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We are experienced in adult social care through the provision of accessible transport but are always looking to learn and improve our links to organisations such as dementia so as to keep up to date with legislation. Awareness training across the business will also help alleviate any potential risk.
Dementia Friends Session
We will organise a dementia friends for drivers to provide awareness and appreciation for people with dementia.
Display information including dementia friendly logo at depot and on buses
Once we received our dementia friendly stickers, they will be displayed on 15 access bus vehicles. We will also display them in a prominent position at Leeds and Wakefield depots.
- Being implemented
Train the trainer
Identify a colleague to be trained in delivering refreshing dementia friends sessions, and incorporate this into our recruitment program.
