Celebrating 4400 People and Personal Pledges to Make A Difference

 Celebrating 4000 People & Personal Pledges To Make A Difference


Thank you from my heart OVER 4000 People have now made a personal pledge - commitment to Make A Difference  for people living with Dementia ,families and carers

I have had the great privilege to meet so many amazing, caring, inspiring people IN PERSON on my tour across the country on twitter via our Dementia Carer voices Blog and my own TommyOnTour blog.

We are truly inspired by the people the pledges the commitment and the inspiring staff pledge trees appearing in hospitals ,care home ,universities and workplaces all across the country 

More important the passion and commitment to fulfill the pledges is truly inspiring 




We are still on our  ‘Make A Difference ‘ campaign and tour engaging with Health and Social Care Professionals and Students, with  85  talks confirmed as of today  for this year and OVER  4000 personal pledges. To make a difference

We are very inspired by the pledges, the different ways Hospital Boards, Universities and Individuals are taking the pledges forward and embedding them into practice with great desire from all to make a difference.

I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people and have had many emotional journeys home late at night from talks thinking back to all that happened each day; the people I have met,the pledges that have been made , the stories I have heard and the great initiatives so many people have shared.
