Tommy Whitelaw’s Campaign
Tommy Whitelaw had a successful career in the music business until his mum developed vascular dementia and he suddenly became a full-time carer. In 2011 he set off on a marathon walk across Scotland, inviting carers from all over the nation to send or bring him letters telling their own dementia stories. He recently met Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to show her the letters and urge her government to take action for dementia carers in Scotland. Click here to read Tommy’s blog.
