Celebrating People and Nearing 13,000 pledges to Make a Difference




I thought I might share a wee update on our ‘Make a Difference’ Campaign and tour as we approach 13,000  Personal Pledges to make a difference

We have engaged with nearly  70,000 people in person over the last 2 years at over 500 talks  and events , collecting pledges from health and social care professionals and we’d like to share some of their inspiring words, and help celebrate the work they do to putting pledges in to practice make a difference

We are very inspired by the different ways Individuals, Hospitals Universities Care Homes and Care at home teams have been putting pledges in to practice

You can read every pledge here at  https://dementiacarervoices.wordpress.com/pledges/
