thred is a Community interest company and we believe that it’s vital to connect Transport, Health, Research and the Economy for those living with the condition.
We believe in doing things differently and can no longer look at all these sectors in isolation. We intend to have joined up conversations with all involved about how we can connect communities to reduce isolation and loneliness and improve the wellbeing of people with dementia and their carers.
The company is run by four directors:
Tommy Dunne BEM
We have all worked locally, regionally and nationally across different sectors including health and social care, research, housing and transport over several years, driven by the fact that Tommy and Paul are living with dementia and Pat and Louise are former carers.
Our combined experience means that together we represent the two sides of living with dementia.
Try to value what a person with dementia can do, rather than focus on what they can't do.
After our twitter chat tonight about public transport, we would like to campaign for a standard dementia travel card. Please register with us for updates....
