Watch this space for a revival of our groundbreaking resources for families living with dementia, with particular acknowledgement of the growing number of younger carers - notably millennials - who are finding themselves in caring roles for their loved ones in our ageing society.
You can see a short film of the families who kindly shared their stories and participated in the project advisory and editorial board here.
The specification we received at the time from young carers of family members with dementia was: “we want something like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, where the facts are true and the feelings are real”. Thanks Jack, we hope we did justice to your original words.
We are so proud that this project - the book and learning resource for children, families, communities and society - will now be finding its feet in the United States. If you are interested in collaborating, or able to offer any financial support for these next steps, we would love to hear from you.
