Digging for Dementia

Growing with people with dementia

Lights, camera, action!

Last year, I was interviewed by one of my former colleagues at Groundwork Oldham & Rochdale, where I worked as a VPA in late 2012. I happened across the video yesterday, so I thought I’d share it here. The Groundwork VPA scheme is a three-month voluntary graduate scheme which enables graduates to gain invaluable experience in community, environmental, and social initiatives in the third sector. My time at Groundwork changed my life – without it, there’d be no Digging for Dementia!


In the video, I talk a lot about Digging for Dementia and how the Groundwork VPA scheme gave me the skills to start the project, and I hope it helps people to better understand my background, and why I started Digging for Dementia. Enjoy!
