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?

By working alongside other support organisations we support people with dementia to gain access to benefits they maybe entitled too.

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

It can be hard to reach this group and then difficult get the information required, if they do not have carers with them for them, to fill out the forms required to gain benefits.
