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 appreciate the scale of the increasing numbers of people living with dementia that live in the community. We provide vital services and leisure to the community and wish to be more inclusive but enabling people living with dementia to continue using our services and shops.

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

We are sometimes limited by existing infrastructure but will make physical changes to the way we do business as and when refit opportunities present.
