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?

People with dementia fit into one of our target groups for our new physical activity strategy. We have recently been commissioned to develop Sporting Memories Network groups in Winchester, Southampton and Eastleigh. These groups are designed to engage older people to reduce isolation and lonliness. These groups are dementia friendly and we wish to continue to prmote this.

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

Engaging with local groups to get onboard with the project. Getting information out to those people that would benefit from the groups.
