ONE destination model explained

Model explaied

Each ONE destination is designed to be rooted in collaboration within the local community, meeting the local needs, delivered and landed by the local community mainly consisting of dementia trained staff, memory service, many sector and fundraising partnerships with local businesses, and of course the valuable network of volunteers.

All ONE destinations are modelled on the Centre of Excellence, Sage House in West Sussex, the first of its kind launched by Dementia Support 5 years ago. Sage House is agile and experimental in moulding around the support needed in the community, a model that is proving to be scalable and adoptable nationwide.
