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?
Working in partnership with one another and a variety of other agencies for many years, the Trust is offering wider community access to facilities and varied activities within and beyond the school day. Our mission is to support all young people and families from Mitcham Town in reaching their full potential.
We aim to create ongoing learning opportunities for the whole community through collaboration, creativity and innovation. Our objectives are focused around continuous professional development, curriculum innovation and raising already high standards of teaching and learning.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
We would like to make more meaningful and lasting connections in the wider community, including reaching older adults and people affected by dementia.
