The Life Changes Trust was created to drive real and meaningful improvement in the lives of young people with experience of being in care and people affected by dementia.

More About Us

Care Experienced Young People

Currently, there are around 16,000 looked after children and young people in Scotland. Our Care Experienced Young People Programme is committed to giving young people with care experience a voice, so that they themselves can shape our work and influence change. We will invest in these young people and those who can advocate and effect change on their behalf.

Care Experienced Young People

People Affected by Dementia

There are an estimated 90,000 people in Scotland with dementia, and countless thousands of unpaid carers. With a population that is living longer, these numbers are expected to rise. We are committed to listening to what people affected by dementia say they need and what is important to them, and we will invest our funds in line with this.

People Affected by Dementia


We have a range of publications which include funding reports and evaluations, our business strategy and information on the Trust.
