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 have a fully inclusive approach and aim to welcome everyone to our projects. We want to give people living with dementia the choice to enrich their lives with visits to the theatre with their families and special teas.

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

We want to understand the needs of people living with dementia and their families and carers. We want to be able to dedicate more time to promotong our offer.
