Roundhay Quaker meeting

Place of worship for Quakers and a community venue place for hire to local groups.

Leeds Dementia Action Alliance

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 consider local members of the meeting about what we can do to help those affected by the condition.

We are liaising with the Leeds Dementia Action Alliance to get support about becoming a dementia friendly place of worship.

We hold dementia awareness meetings where people can share their personal experience and advice. 

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

Making changes to the physical environment of the meeting, could cause some 'upset's to members. Also justifying the cost of some of the environmental changes. 

Another challenges is to now what are the most important changes to make, to become a dementia friendly venue.
