Vice Chair 

I am Vice Chair at tide and proud and honoured to work with the other trustees and management.

About Roger...

 My wife has advanced dementia and is now in a care home. I cared for her at home for around six years and she was also hospitalised a few times, so I have experience of being involved with issues surrounding dementia in three different settings. In a lot of ways I have been relatively fortunate in that she has become happy and passive, I had already retired and we do not have financial worries. However, I have experienced tiredness, frustration, and anger at different times in different contexts and wanted to use my previous professional experience and skills to help as much as I can.

 I have been a member of the Tide Advisory Group since its inception and am a member of the Law for Dementia Carers Steering Group. I am a retired Professor of Law and former Head of School and Associate Dean of Faculty. In these roles, I was involved with or chaired a wide spread of committees and panels. I have particular experience of governance, management, and quality assurance and hope to use these to tide’s benefit. I also understand the benefits of networking and collaborative working and with my belief in education and communication want to help tide establish more links and work collaboratively.
