Tommy and Irene speak to GCU #livedexperience #rights

Massive thanks to Dr Gill Constable, Lecturer of Social Work at Glasgow Caledonian University for inviting Dementia Carer Voices back again to speak to Second year MSc Social Work students who will shortly be qualifying as social workers on 8th of April.

This followed on from Tommy`s talk last week and were invited back to speak to more students along with our Project Director, Irene Oldfather. The session consisted of our Make a Difference talk followed by an interactive session on The Charter of Rights, making a pledge and the PANEL approach.

You view can Irene`s presentation from the day here, with useful links and information.
