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?

I have a sense of belonging and of being a valued part of family, community and civic life-enabling access for those living with dementia and their carers to the museum collections

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