Event description

Description


The Life Changes Trust welcome you to their second in a series of 14 Collaborative Learning Events across Scotland. The Life Changes Trust, people with dementia, unpaid carers and stakeholder’s from across the Grampian have been working collaboratively over the last 6 months to design this event. We want to 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 has 3 sessions: the morning session will shine a light on local projects followed by an extended lunch time session hosting an interactive and informative marketplace. Our market place is already subscribed with over 20 stalls including Alzheimer Scotland, Enable Cuppa Club Moray, Dementia Friendly Aberdeenshire, Table Tennis Scotland and NHS Grampian who want to hear about patient experience in acute wards. The day will culminate in the afternoon session with themed discussions where we listen to what matters to people affected by dementia in Grampian, highlighting their priorities and making a committment to addressing these as a partnership moving forward.

  • Joining the conference for the day will be Moray Chief Officer, Pam Gowans and Aberdeen City Lead Commissioner, Anne McKenzie. We hope to have representation from Aberdeenshire HSCP confirmed soon.

  • The event will also be streamed on Facebook live so don't worry if you can't make it on the day, please contact the organiser for information on local Hubs who will be hosting the livestream if you wish to attend or simply watch it on your own device in a place of your choosing!


Who should attend:

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