Conference bursaries:

The Life Changes Trust believes it is important that conferences and seminars about dementia are attended by people living with dementia and carers. This is why the Trust has funded a number of conference places to date and has written reports on how people have benefited from being at such conferences.

Peer to peer resources awards:

The Life Changes Trust believes that people living with dementia and carers in Scotland have an enormous amount of knowledge and helpful information to share with each other. This ‘person with dementia to person with dementia’ and ‘carer to carer’ support is sometimes called ‘peer support’.

Get outdoors funding:

The Trust already funds a number of projects that involve people in walking or sporting activities. We are interested in funding further projects that connect people with dementia with the outdoors in a way they wish to connect.

LGBTi communities and dementia:

The Trust has made a commitment to increase understanding about the particular issues that people from certain ‘protected characteristic’ groups may face when they are affected by dementia. In order to do this, the Trust is offering awards of between £15,000 and £50,000, to be spent over a timescale of up to 2 years (starting from April 2018).
