This Week

Tuesday saw the first meeting of Dementia Enquirers in London. It is organised by Innovations in Dementia and DEEP UK with funding from the Big Lottery Fund.

Dementia Enquirers is a group of people living with Dementia along with Philly Hare and Rachael Litherland looking at how research can be undertaken by the 100+ DEEP groups.

Wednesday to Friday saw the European Commission-Hague Convention Joint Conference on the Cross-border Protection of Vulnerable Adults in Brussels which I attended along with Kate Swaffer and Julie Hayden.

In a cruel twist of fate, Kate had a poor experience of Assisted Travel at Brussels Airport and Julie had a poor experience at Brussels and Manchester, the only way it could be described is as Assisted Rights Abuse.

More to follow in the coming week.

Apologies reader, as it’s only a short article today as I am recovering from my travels this week.
