Work Programme 4: Update on Activity in Greater Manchester: (April 2018)

Greater Manchester: In January Andrew and Sarah travelled to Bulgaria under the auspices of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union to collect a European Foundations’ Initiative on Dementia Award in Sofia. We joined 11 other awardees recognised for work that values the voice of people living with dementia. The awards evening took place following a series of workshops with people and organisations seeking to improve the lives of people living with dementia across Europe. We have also been successful in gaining additional funding from the ESRC to support our programme of dissemination work, including the development of creative outputs under the guidance of a team of people living with dementia and their carers who participated in the earlier stages of the research.
