Name: Sarish Saghir
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Bradford
Campaign: To increase young people's understanding of dementia

I’ve got to learn a lot about people with dementia through my experience volunteering in care homes.


Some residents would tell me their life stories and then a week later, forget who I was.


It was really upsetting and made me want to help in some way.


With Fixers, my team and I have produced a poster campaign which sheds light on dementia and the impact it has on people.


We want to educate others our age about this condition to enable them to better support those affected.

Francesca Raine and Jade Lee-Lawrence helped me with this Fix.
