Philly Hare is a Co-Director at Innovations in Dementia CIC (iD). People with dementia are at the heart and start of all our work. We promote a positive view of dementia, demonstrating that although dementia is life changing it does not have to be life ending.
Philly’s particular interests are the empowerment and inclusion of people with dementia, and the application of research evidence to practice. As a qualified social worker, she has experience within the NHS, Local Authorities and the voluntary sector in many areas of adult social care. In the 1990s, she managed the Scarborough/ Ryedale Kings Fund Carers Project and later set up the Princess Royal Trust Carers Resource.
Philly has a first degree in English and Philosophy (Exeter University) and an MSc in Applied Social Studies (Oxford University). She is also Knowledge Exchange Fellow, University of Edinburgh (ECRED), and Honorary Visiting Researcher, University of Bradford.
