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 aim to raise awareness in our school community of dementia and the effects and support available locally. Key front line staff and students leaders will attend dementia friends awareness sessions to ensure they are able to offer appropriate support.
Key front line staff will attend Dementia Friends awareness sessions during a September non pupil day
School fund raiser planned for Dementia Action Week (w/c 20 May)
Dementia Friends sessions delivered to selected students
Awareness of EDAA raised through school newsletters and website
Dementia friendly signs placed on visitors toilets
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Whilst we have the full support of the Leadership Team and the Ted Wragg Trust with ever changing demands on education one of the challenges will be ensuring momentum in dementia awareness initiatives. However we plan to calendar annual events to help with this.
