The Law for Dementia Carers (L4DC) project aims to work with Dementia United (DU) with the aim "to make Greater Manchester the best place in the world for dementia care" - to embed access to legal support for carers of people with dementia and recognise its contribution to improving both individual and system-wide health outcomes. Aligning and embedding the outcomes of this project within the DU programme as well as the GM wide Commitment to Carers (Right help and support at the right time) will enable us to embed and sustain this approach after the pilot project. The project will embed human rights education and legal support by means of a three tiered approach:
to co –develop a blended modular legal support training programme for carers, using their lived experience.
Co-develop and co-deliver a blended training programme for staff utilising expert carers;
Co-produce guidance for policy developers, educators and commissioning bodies to influence and embed the learning and outcomes.
