50 Cars are a long established provider in West Hull and one of the oldest providers in Hull. In 2013 we merged with Belmont Taxis, partnering the two oldest established firms in Hull. We take our customer needs and views seriously and work closely with them to provide the best service possible. Over the past year we have been working hard with our drivers to train them in First Aid, Manual Handling, COSHH, Infection Control, and NVQ in Road Passenger Vehicle Driving. All of our vehicles are clean, modern and well maintained for your comfort.

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?

There are currently 850,000 people living in the UK with dementia. In Yorkshire and the Humber there are over 60,000 people with dementia, and it is predicted that this figure will rise to just over 80,000 by 2021. In 2014 the University of Hull undertook a research project with a key aim to identify what would make Hull dementia friendly. People living with dementia and their carers were consulted and the overwhelming response was that to make Hull Dementia Friendly the people of Hull would need to have an understanding of what it was like to live with dementia.

As an organisation within the Hull boundary, and providing services to the people of Hull it is important to work with other organisations/ business to act on the results/outcomes of the Universities report and work together to make Hull Dementia Friendly.

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

The challenges we face include accessing/ releasing staff for dementia awareness training.
