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?

Our building should be accessible for the whole community and we see our primary role to be able to signpost people to organisations that can offer them specialist local support (which may or may not be based in our centre)

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

The challenges we have are lack of financial resources to make the necessary changes and the need to constantly train and recruit volunteers.
