People with dementia meeting

What is VERDe?

VERDe stands for Values, Equality, Rights and Dementia. The aim of the project is to embed different thinking and a rights-based approach in policy and practice for people living with dementia. It is funded by JRF and Life Changes Trust and led by the Mental Health Foundation.

The Values, Equalities, Rights and Dementia network (VERDe) aims to embed different thinking and a rights-based approach in policy and practice for people living with dementia.

The project runs from October 2015 to April 2017 and involves a series of six forum meetings. The themes for the events are based on work generated by JRF’s Dementia Without Walls (DWW) programme.

Invitees include members of the DWW programme and other key influencers, policy makers and community activists. This network will, we hope, inform, sustain and expand the network of influencers beyond the lifetime of the JRF’s DWW programme. It will also identify and wherever possible, implement, practical and achievable ways for the network to have lasting impact on changing thinking and a rights-based approach to policy and practice concerning rights and values for people living with dementia.

Briefing papers, short forum meeting reports and relevant links and resources are available here.
