Dementia Forward

In addition to delivering dementia services in the Ripon and Harrogate District Dementia Forward has the role of delivering project work for City of York Council on the York Dementia Without Walls (YDWW) project. We are working alongside businesses and organisations in York to educate and raise awareness of dementia as well as with the general public, through a range of events and education sessions.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists a number of outcomes that we 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 role is to raise awareness and educate.  We work with people from all demographics and encourage them to champion the YDWW work.  The main outcome we work towards is the reduction is stigma, increased inclusion and a better place to live for people with dementia.

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

We have limited resource, but the response is very positive and we hope it will gather a momentum of its own as the project progresses.
