Earlier this week, Project Onwards travelled to Glasgow to attend the quarterly Life Changes Trust Gathering. The gathering is open to all Life Changes Trust funded projects and enables us to come together and share our work.
Project Onwards is grateful to the Life Changes Trust for facilitating these events. We believe the Gatherings help to create an open, sharing and collaborative network across the variety of projects Life Changes Trust supports. It is inspiring to hear from others about their work and be updated on their progress.
We will be launching a four-month trial of Turn To Us in January 2019. As such, we chose to have a stand at the Gathering to allow anyone who was interested to find out more. The number of people who came to speak to us highlighted how many people affected by dementia can experience difficulties with their travel or transport. We look forward to trialling the Turn To Us service and evaluating its value in 2019.
