Today is ‘What Matters to You?’ Day 2017 – a chance to flip the conversation from ‘What’s the matter with you?’ to ‘What matters to you?’ Individuals and organisations across Scotland are joining in and Dementia Carer Voices is marking the day with a series of activities and posts.
Project Engagement Lead, Tommy Whitelaw, represented the ALLIANCE on the WMTY national steering group and has been deeply involved in spreading the message and raising awareness of the day in colleges, universities, hospitals and care homes throughout the country.
We have collected our blog posts, interviews, podcasts, photos and other activity to mark the day. Please click on the links below to see our work for WMTY day. #WMTY17
