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’.
In 2019 we launched the project in Inverness and East Lothian. Due to the Pandemic in October 2020 we launched an exciting online programme with people from all over Scotland. 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.
