Dementia & Caring, can you help a son and carer fulfill some of this hopes and dreams

Good morning, I hope if you are reading this today you may be able to help with some of the hopes, dreams and projects I am working on in my wee quest to raise awareness and understating on both Dementia and Caring
Collecting life stories
For the last year I have been collecting life stories to take to our Deputy First Minister to help tell the story of dementia and caring, our live, in our own words I feel this is a unique opportunity to give cares and families like mine a voice if you would like to share you’re experience good or bad, it would be great to hear from you
Motion Glasgow City Council
Back in February I had a motion passed at Glasgow City council to look at dementia and caring and for the outcome and report to be taken to the Scottish Government. if you would like to add your thoughts or opinions this would help and be part of the make up of this report
Dementia and Caring through Art
As of yesterday I now have a confirmed and amazing partnership with Garnavel Royal Hospital,to put together a permanent exhibition  in their reception are and corridors leading to the older persons wards .This will be based on the letters I receive and people I meet ,if you would like to send some ideas or are interested in producing some work for this to help comfort and inspire all who view  please get in touch
I have many other projects like Care Inspectorate meet the carers on June 26th and many talks lined up. talks within the Care Sector and beyond talks based on my life caring for my mum and letters I receive ,I do all this on a voluntary basis
I hope if you would like to help or get involved with any of the above you will get in touch, you can e mail me at
Thank you
