Training and education at DSDC helps grow the confidence, knowledge and skills that make a difference to people with dementia, improve professional practice and enhance careers. DSDC can deliver the right training and education whether you are a family carer, staff working in primary care, acute care, housing, social care, voluntary sector; or a commissioner of dementia services.

A big thank you. The feed-back has been overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. Can honestly say I have not had such a staff reaction to ‘training’ before, it is so nice to hear
