EVENT: Community & Dementia, creating better lives in Grampian

About the Event

Between 2018 and 2021, the Life Changes Trust is holding a series of 14 Collaborative Learning Events across Scotland.  Our first visit was to Inverness in November 2018. 

Our next event will be on the 20th March in Aberdeen. 

The Life Changes Trust, people with dementia, unpaid carers and stakeholder’s from across Grampian have been working collaboratively over the last few months to design this event.

We want to innovate, inform and inspire those who attend by providing an opportunity to learn from initiatives and evidence from across Grampian. This will support local areas to think more deeply about how communities can uphold the human rights of people with dementia and unpaid carers. 

The Programme

  • The event programme will consist of short innovative presentations, an interactive and informative marketplace as well as inspiring engagement sessions where we listen to what matters to people affected by dementia in the Grampian region, highlighting their priorities and addressing these as a partnership moving forward.

Who should attend

People living with dementia, unpaid carers, health and social care staff, the voluntary and independant sector, planning and policy officers.
