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 pledge to offer Dementia Friends awareness sessions via our internal training platforms and to embed a culture where colleagues have sufficient training and guidance to support customers living with dementia and their carers.

We pledge to constantly review our documentation and products to ensure they meet the needs of our customers who are vulnerable.

We pledge to constantly review our support for local projects and services. We currently support a dementia café and younger persons group.

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

Ensuring we have a uniform approach to delivering awareness across the organisation and within each site/business unit.
