We’re delighted to have been recognised by Scotland’s Dementia Awards 2018, which is a partnership with Alzheimer Scotland, NHS Education for Scotland and Scottish Social Services Council; a celebration of World Alzheimer’s Day. We’re a finalist in the category of Best Dementia Friendly Community Initiative.
From their website: ” Scotland’s Dementia Awards provides an opportunity for professionals and communities, who are committed to enhancing the health, well-being and experience of people with dementia and their families, to have their work recognised and promoted. The awards scheme aims to clearly demonstrate how, across Scotland, policy is being put into practice in a sustainable and professional way; as well as celebrating good ideas, meaningful partnership working and practice excellence.
The awards recognise the country’s most innovative and ambitious projects, celebrating the passion and dedication of those who work to support people living with dementia and their families in services and projects up and down the country. This is your chance to share your inspirational work with those who understand the positive impact you are making. The powerful stories shared by entrants have a positive impact on everyone from people with dementia and families, to local communities and practitioners.”
Wish us luck on Thursday 20th September at the awards ceremony!
