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 will work in partnerships with other local organisations to share knowledge about best practice in dementia and to improve understanding about dementia.

We will ensure our work with those living with dementia will be planned and informed by the views of people with dementia and their carers.

We aim to support those living with dementia feel that they live in an enabling and supportive environment where they feel valued and understood. This will initially be through improving each of our sections understanding of how people can live well with dementia and how we can contribute to our local environment to make it feel more supportive.

We want to create a sense of belonging and value to those living with dementia in our local community. This will be completed initially by making local links and partnerships with local organisations such as care homes so we can increase social networks for those living with dementia.

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

We have 5 sections to our organisation; each section having a different age group. Our first challenge will be how to deliver our intended outcomes suitable for each age group and ensure that the learning is integrated and developed as the children grow older.

Our second challenge is that; as a fluid and growing organisation; we will have children, leaders and volunteers that will be new or leave the organisation. So to ensure that 60% of our organisation remains dementia friendly at all times.
