In 2016, the Big Lottery Fund awarded funding to the tide network to support carers of people with dementia in England. This funding for tide in England runs in parallel to the Life Changes Trust funding for tide in Scotland.
With tide in England we empowering carers of people with dementia, helping them recognise that they are experts by experience. We believe that by working closely with carers, we can help them understand that, as experts, their voice matters, and can be used to bring about real change. We do this, in part, through our Carers Development Programme, through research and by giving carers a platform at events.
