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 run awareness raising initiatives around health and also BMER communities specifically in relation to dementia

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

We need to ensure we present information to people and groups in a way that they will find interesting and make them want to find out more. Addressing stigma on Dementia within BMER communities will also be a challenge. A lack of resources/information in additional languages could also be a barrier when wanting to provide information to communities in Ealing e.g. Polish as Ealing has the highest concentration of Polish people in the UK.
