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?

We help to provide a service for volunteer and this includes volunteers to support people with dementia. Being a member of the Local DAA will mean that we are able to understand the needs of people with dementia and therefore can promote these needs to our volunteers. We are therefore helping to provide services designed around the specific needs. We are also seeking to provide support to help those with dementia live their lives enabling them to be supported in environment where they feel valued and understood. Volunteers are at the heart of charitable work and we hope to be able to help our local community become dementia friendly.

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

Te challenges will become aparant after we have received sessions and we will meet regularly with the DAA to review our position and collate feedback.
