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?

The Society's vision is what we want to achieve, a world without dementia. Our mission sets out how we will do it and our values are the beliefs that drive our culture. The values are made concrete by our behavioural framework.

Our vision - A world without dementia.​

Our mission - We will: change the face of dementia research, demonstrate best practice in dementia care and support, provide the best advice and support to anyone dealing with dementia, influence the state and society to enable those affected by dementia to live as they wish to live. By pursuing these four goals together we'll mobilise thousands of people. With them we'll reduce the impact of dementia on lives today and create a world without dementia tomorrow.

Our values -  Committed to creating a world without dementia. We get it -  we are trusted experts, informed and inspired by people affected dementia. We are united - together we achieve more. We will do it -  we demand and deliver lasting change.

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