(The ALLIANCE is pleased to announce that Dementia Carer Voices will be the subject of a Members Business debate on the 20th of March.Just after 5 pm next Wednesday, Members of the Scottish Parliament will debate Jackie Baillie MSP’s parliamentary motion which highlights the role played by those who care for the estimated 86,000 people in Scotland living with dementia, the challenges they face and the importance of supporting them by raising awareness of dementia and the carer journey. The motion welcomes the Alliance’s Dementia Carer Voices project for giving a platform to the views and experiences of carers of people with dementia across Scotland

The Dementia Carer Voices project team have produced a briefing ahead of the debate and will be available in the Garden Lobby from 2-2:30pm, to meet with MSPs and discuss the work of the project.)
