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?

Action plan

We aim to ensure that we provide a welcoming and inclusive environment for all visitors to our St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre and those whom we reach through external activities, including people living with dementia, their carers, family and friends.

Actions
• Ensure that the staff and volunteers at The Living Centre are trained as Dementia Friends.
• Have at least one member of staff/ volunteer trained as Dementia Friends Champion
• Distribute information about support and resources available to local people affected by dementia and also the older persons and other groups that the Centre supports
• Review signage’s in the Centre so that it is dementia-friendly.

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

We do not anticipate any significant barriers to delivery of our actions.
