Beth Britton - Campaigner on ageing, health, social care and dementia

Campaigning principles run throughout all of my work. I am a passionate advocate for older people, anyone receiving health or social care support and in particular people with dementia, their carers and families. The foundations for this passion come from my personal experiences, which you can read about here.

I believe in constructive dialogue, learning from experience, co-production, sharing best practice, and keeping the person needing care and support at the heart of all health and social care policy. My extensive network of individuals, families, professionals and organisations from all backgrounds keeps me in touch with the multidisciplinary challenges faced on a daily basis, and my usage of social media ensures I am always informing and driving the debate. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"Beth Britton has the ability to captivate a room with her personal story of caring for her father who lived with vascular dementia"
