Please use the form below if you would like to be considered to join Andy Tysoe and Cathrina Moore as the first “Dementia Rights Champions”. You will need to be able to deliver Dementia Rights information sessions, according to comprehensive guidance.
Rights are pervasive in all aspects of dementia life, for example in the right to dignity (to be in clean hospital clothes through an inpatient stay) or a right to a fair trial (to make a complaint against a care home if need be).
Dementia Rights involves public information sessions, lasting about 40-60 minutes, containing fun activities promoting a rights-based approach to dementia.
Main responsibilities include:
- To organise your own volunteering in times and places that fit your availability.
- To promote Dementia Rights throughout your own networks and communities.
- To act as an ambassador for Dementia Rights, treating everyone with respect and dignity.
