Service summary

Uniting Carers was established in 2005 and is a national network of family carers, former carers, family members and friends of people with dementia. The aim of the network is to give carers the opportunity to raise awareness of dementia and increase people's understanding of dementia.

Uniting Carers has more than 1,000 members throughout the country who use their experience of caring for someone with dementia to make a difference.

Carers often don't ofetn realise how much others can learn from their experiences but by giving carers a voice, their stories can have a real impact. Leading to an important shift in the understanding of what people with dementia and those that care for them need.

These are some of the ways you can get involved:

• Helping to train and educate professionals
• Speaking to the media
• Supporting campaigns
• Writing and speaking about your experiences
• Contributing to research
• Service development
• Fundraising
