Upstream provides training for transport operators based on the real-life experience of people affected by dementia.

We bring people affected by dementia together with people who provide travel and transport services, through stories and shared experiences. We spend time together, learn from each other and explore ways in which transport could become more enabling.

We aim to put the voice of people affected by dementia at the heart of future mobility service design by creating opportunities and conversations that everyone can contribute to.
