I am delighted to have joined tide as a trustee, a role through which I hope I can help the development and growth of the charity as we continue in our essential work to support carers and former carers..
I am an events professional with particular experience in health, social care and education. Having worked extensively around dementia throughout my career, I have had the privilege of meeting many people living with dementia, their carers and families. This has given me a strong sense of the importance of putting people at the centre of policy, practice, and public service delivery.
On a personal level, my best friend is the primary carer for his mum who has been living with Alzheimer’s for several years. His experience has given me insight into the toll these situations take on people, and an even greater desire to get involved and help make a difference.
