Tide - free development programme for dementia carers

9th June 2017

ThinkstockPhotos-116978670_CMYK.jpgEvery day in the UK over 670,000 people are giving unpaid care to people living with dementia. However many don’t realise that they are, in fact, carers and that they are experts by experience. Across the North West Coast geographical footprint there are approximately 35,600 people diagnosed with dementia and about 28,100 unpaid carers.

The Tide (Together in Dementia Everyday) charity has co-produced a bespoke development programme for carers to provide them with the necessary practical, emotional and psychological tools to share their experiences and compelling stories in a constructive manner.

From local communities to large national conferences, Tide champions the role of the dementia carer to help bring about positive attitudinal and behavioural change so that the nation recognises, values and involves carers of people with dementia.

Tide works with and empowers carers and former carers, bringing them together as a powerful network with a common cause. They are building a social movement with the power to influence regional, national and international policy, aid research and influence the way in which local services are commissioned and provided.
