Corney & Barrow, Newmarket
Set on Newmarket’s High Street, Corney & Barrow’s shop not only provides a comfortable environment to browse our wines, it is also the base for our East Anglian team. We provide a comprehensive range of services locally and throughout East Anglia, including wine advice, corporate gifts, events and restaurant trade supply and support. At over 230 years old, Corney & Barrow is one of the longest established Independent Wine Merchants in the UK. We've come a long way since Edward Bland Corney opened his first shop on Old Broad Street in the City of London, offering a small selection of Port, Sherry and Bordeaux. Today, Corney & Barrow sells wine to every sector of the market, with offices in England, Scotland and Asia, and producers all over the globe.

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 would seek to promote awareness of dementia issues to our staff so that those living with dementia and their carers feel comfortable and at ease, when selecting wines in our shop. We would wish to review what we do on a regular basis and endeavour to improve our facilities and our awareness of dementia issues. We would seek to resolve specific problems that may occur with individuals from time to time.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Making sure that all staff have a good understanding of the issues surrounding people living with Dementia by attending and cascading training. Helping staff not to make assumptions.
Improve our understanding of Dementia
We will arrange for all staff/volunteers to be dementia aware to ensure greater understanding of the condition and how we can help.
Work in partnership with Newmarket DAA
Corney and Barrow will work with the Newmarket Dementia Action Alliance to support Newmarket to become a dementia friendly community and encourage other organisations to attend Dementia Friends sessions and sign up to the Dementia Action Alliance.
