Daren Felgate – Associate Consultant Trainer
National Perspective • Fun • Expert Facilitator
After growing up in Liverpool and moving to London I have worked in learning and development for nearly 20 years. I began as a researcher and trainer with the charity Directory of Social Change.
In 1997 I joined the Alzheimer's Society helping to develop their care services within at that time the Care Consortium. Subsequently as Training Development Manager at Alzheimer's Society I helped to commission, develop and produce a range of publications and training resources including 'Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow' and 'Tomorrow is Another Day'. Within the Society I was involved externally in delivering training programmes and consultancy to a range of dementia care providers. The Alzheimer's Society publication 'Planning dementia care learning and development' was authored by me.
In 2008 I joined AgeCare, a charity with care homes where my role was to provide dementia care related learning and supporting the development of dementia care within AgeCare and other organisations. I joined Dementia Care Matters having worked extensively over the last 10 years alongside David and Peter in the development of their work. This has given me the opportunity to promote and train on approaches in dementia care in which I firmly believe.
I honour my roots through a lifetime passion for Liverpool football club.
