There are many misconceptions about living with dementia and we want to change that.
We imagine a Scotland where having dementia doesn’t matter for who we are as people or how we live our lives. A lot of people feel the same and are already taking the lead and making positive contributions to support people living with dementia.
bold is an innovative programme bringing diverse types of leaders together on an equal footing. It provides free leadership opportunities across Scotland to help those living with dementia flourish and make a difference.
The bold project brings together people living with dementia, family members, professional carers, NHS staff, artists and people from all walks of life. We focus on using creative arts methods, for personal development, whenever possible.
The five-year project is being delivered in partnership by Edinburgh University and Queen Margaret University and is funded by the Life Changes Trust.
