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 aim to raise awareness of dementia within the network, and connect people to services that can help them.

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

Time constraints may limit how quickly we are able to raise our awareness of dementia.
