Created by carers for carers, TIDE – Together in Dementia Every Day – is a national involvement network for carers and former carers of people with dementia, hosted by Life Story Network CIC. A core principle of TIDE is how we value, respect and support carers and former carers of people living with dementia. Using lived experience, TIDE enables a diverse range of carers to have a powerful collective voice, which raises awareness of their unique needs and rights, ensuring that these influence practice, policy and research at all levels
The initial phased roll out of TIDE will cover the Liverpool City and Manchester City Regions and has been funded by the Big Lottery – Accelerating Ideas Programme.
