Resources and Downloads
Made By Mortals want to help our community support people to live positively with dementia and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Here you can download all additional audio and pdf resources from our project in partnership with Together Dementia Support. All the resources have been co-produced with people living with dementia and their carers and are for people who wish to make their service, group, organisation or venue more dementia friendly.
Person Centred Approaches
In 2021, Tameside Hospital commissioned Made By Mortals to deliver a series of staff development sessions. Using several Hidden episodes, people from many different roles within the hospital, were encouraged to take a walk in another person’s shoes and consider what they and their teams could do to help. Through a ‘train the trainer’ model, the project has since developed so that some staff are now able to deliver the workshops in the hospital themselves.

Co-production is at the heart of what we do, so we were delighted when GM Cancer Alliance got in touch to ask us to help showcase the use of people’s lived experience within a decision making process.
Using a character from one of the Hidden episodes, we were able to demonstrate the benefits of having ‘service users’ on pathway boards while also highlighting barriers and challenges. To do this, we worked with a group of people who have experience of a cancer diagnosis to gain further insight on their involvement on cancer pathway boards and presented this additional audio at conference for lead clinicians.
