Dementia Care Voices were invited to have a stand at Person-Centred Health & Care Collaborative Learning Session 4 at the SECC on 27th & 28th May. It was a great two days showcasing our “You can make a difference” campaign. Big thanks to everyone who came to our stand and chatted with the team.
We met a lot of people who were on board with our campaign. Massive thanks to those who took the time to make a pledge and if you didn’t get the chance to then you can send them to makeadifference@alliance-Scotland.org.uk
A little change could make a big impact to someone living with a long term condition and their carers, family and friends.
