LSN promotes the use of life stories and narrative approaches to help people retain their sense of self and remain connected with their families, friends and communities. We work with communities and local organisations to develop sustainable engagement strategies. We host the national involvement network for carers, tide – together in dementia every day, enabling carers and former carers to have a powerful, collective voice, using their lived experience to raise awareness of their unique needs and rights to influence practice, policy and research at all levels.

Why is your organisation committed to the NDAA and the Dementia Statements?

The Dementia Action Alliance and the National Dementia Declaration reflects LSN & tide’s ethos in terms of who we are and what we do; We continue to act as a strong catalyst for ensuring that the needs and rights of people living with dementia and their family carers are recognised, respected and met from grassroots/local communities to national policy and research and continue to support a range of organisations to ensure that they develop sustainable carer participation strategies underpinned by principles of co-production within a rights based approach.
