bold reflects our aspiration to be courageous, creative and imaginative in our approach.
The full project title, Bringing Out Leaders in Dementia, recognises that a large number of new leaders of all ages and from all walks of life, including many persons living with dementia, are already finding their place in ‘the dementia world’.
So far we have launched the project in Inverness and East Lothian and the people that we have been working with are a real mix of those working in the community; on arts projects; in care homes; charities; some have relatives living with dementia; others have dementia and others who are interested in doing something positive to help those living with dementia reach their potential. The focus of bold is to use a mixture of creative methods to encourage creativity, innovation and personal development.
We are now working on ways to develop an online programme due to Covid-19 restrictions.
