Ad Astra@New Lodge Community Centre

We are a community interest company, with a community hub in New Lodge, aiming to offer quality provision locally. We focus mainly on young people, but also provide activities for toddlers and adults. We want to become a dementia friendly venue, to support families and individuals who are living with dementia

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?

Setting up a regular support group.

We have held a consultation day involving Barnsley Dementia Action Alliance, and members of the public to determine what kind of group people would like

Dementia Friends Training for all staff and volunteers

We will organise a dementia friends training session with the local Alzheimer's Society

Premises check

We will check our premises using the dementia friendly environment checklist and will endeavour to make any necessary changes during our next refurbishment

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

Being a CIC, any money we make is always ploughed back into the work, but funding to help us to continue to deliver the sessions can be an issue
