Kindness for carers

Serena was struck by the kindness shown by carers to people with dementia; “They know that some questions require a gentle and even slightly ‘creative’ response rather than a truth that would be misunderstood or cause pain” she told me.

How to collaborate

Many organisations are currently looking at their post-pandemic ways of working. One element of success will undoubtedly be how well teams and individuals can collaborate.

Sharing my knowledge with DanceSyndrome for International Women’s Day.

I feel so lucky to be able to work pro bono sometimes. Recently I volunteered with DanceSyndrome on IWD22.
