Paula Nelson, Project Coordinator
What do you do for Dementia Adventure?
I am the Dementia Adventure project coordinator and currently manage the Social Licence project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund. I am working with four national organisations to make getting outside and enjoying nature easier and more accessible for people living with dementia. I spend my time planning with and talking to those delivering for the organisations, looking at what support is needed, how the evaluation of the project is going and finding solutions to the challenges that come with project management!
What’s the best thing about your job?
I love the opportunity the role gives me to be part of something that is making a difference across the country.
What makes you want to work for Dementia Adventure?
Being with a team of people who are committed to making a genuine difference to people living with dementia is really inspiring and means it is a great place to work. I love having the chance to make a difference.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
Make the best decision you can with what you have in front of you, you can’t second guess the future!
