On 10 June 2013, we received the news that we had been awarded a three-year contract to provide design and print services to the University of Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC). The contract formally started on 1 August, and over the past 12 months we have successfully delivered over 75 projects for the DSDC.

The Dementia Services Development Centre is a leading international research centre that publishes evidence-based practice guides covering every aspect of dementia care. Its award-winning training courses are delivered internationally and are helping health and social care staff improve standards of care for people with dementia. We have been instrumental in helping develop these training materials, including writing and editing content. We also design, print, store and distribute training packs on the DSDC’s behalf.

Over the last year, we have also helped the DSDC produce a wide range of books, briefing papers, e-bulletins, marketing materials and reports. Our role includes writing and editing content where required. We have been able to demonstrate a clear understanding of the DSDC’s specialist subjects, writing about dementia-related issues accurately and in a tone of voice that is appropriate to each of their target audiences.

We have very much enjoyed working with the DSDC team over the last 12 months and are looking forward to year 2 of the contract!
