Tide – together in dementia every day. The UK wide involvement network for carers of people living with dementia; with the aim to improve the services available to those they care for.

Tide – together in dementia every day – is the UK wide involvement network for carers and former carers of people living with dementia. The overall aim of the tide carer network is to improve their experiences as unpaid carers as well as the services available to those they care for carers and health and care professionals who are working together to build a better future for carers of people living with dementia.

Here at tide, we empower carers and former carers of people living with dementia, helping them to recognise that they are experts by experience. We believe that by working closely with carers and former carers, we can help them understand that, as experts, their voice matters, and can be used to bring about real change. That’s why we’re here, uniting carers and former carers across the country to use their experience and knowledge to help themselves and others.
