I do hope that you don’t mind my contacting you. Your details have been given to me by a colleague. I am delivering two training days on dementia to MSc 1 and MSc 2 Social Work students. The first day is on Wednesday 25th March and the second day is the 8th April. They are two different cohorts of students. I wondered if it would be possible for you to speak at either of these days. I think you are in the university on the 25th March and therefore you may not wish to do another session on that day.
I have heard you speak and your account is very moving. It is important that as social workers in training they have a sense of what the experience of caring is like and how they can best be supportive. The training days are from 9.30am – 4.30pm and I would adjust the programme to best meet your time commitments if you were available.
