The Positive Dementia Group, based in Aberdeen, is involved in awareness raising through giving talks to students, chaplains, social workers etc. They are also involved in media work (e.g. radio interviews, TV, newspaper articles & ‘Through Our Eyes’ DVD). Some members have spoken at conferences about their experience.
They have also been involved in consultation by the local authority/NHS to share their experiences and comments for influencing policies/strategies, including more recently the Scottish Dementia Strategy. Some members of the Positive Dementia Group are also involved in research.
