THANK YOU to date 1500 people have made a personal pledge to -Make A Difference #JoinTheMovement

A BIG thank you from  the heart to everyone who has made a pledge so far ,for our  You Can Make A Difference Campaign and tour  as of today we have received just over 1500 personal pledges commitments 

You Can View All The Pledges Below 
We aim to ensure that carers have their voices heard, their rights and caring role are recognised by those who play a part in the journey and that real life experience influences health and social care policy, culture and practice. Having heard the stories of Tommy and other carers as part of the ‘You Can Make a Difference’ Campaign, we have been asking those working in Health and Social Care services:
What one thing will you take away and change in order to make a difference to the lives of people with dementia and their carers?
The answers we have collected through the campaign so far have been inspiring, and we feel very privileged to have received these pledges to make a difference, and to be able to share them. If you would like to read some of these pledges, you can do so by accessing the full archive via the list below.
If you would like to make your own pledge, we would love to hear about it! Please send us your pledge via email to
