Dementia Carer Voices are very honoured to be invited to speak at the NHS EXPO on our ‘Make A Difference’ campaign and tour on September 7th 2016.

We have now received an incredible  10,000 personal pledges from Individuals, Hospitals, Care Homes, Universities and Colleges on how they will make a difference for people living with dementia, families, carers and colleagues.

Tommy had the great experience to speak at the EXPO a few years ago at the beginning of the campaign, So its great to be returning to give a update.

Tommy will be taking part in the session with Paul Jebb @pauljebb1  Exp of Care Professional Lead, @NHSEngland Hon Snr Lec @uclan and Jen Kenward @Jenkenward, Experience of Care Lead – Community, primary & integrated care @NHSEngland  who will speaking about ‘Turning good intentions into a purposeful action’ on how and where people can find support on the pledges made this session will be at Central 8 at 12 o’clock.

We feel this is a great opportunity to both celebrate and help support the incredible people and pledges we have met and received along the way.
