What is engagement and participation?
Engagement and participation is when people affected by dementia volunteer to help shape the work that Alzheimer's Society does. It is also often referred to as 'user involvement'.
We welcome people with dementia, carers and supporters (friends and family of people with dementia) to take part in helping Alzheimer's Society deliver excellent services to people affected by dementia.
There are many ways to take part such as reviewing publications, helping us recruit staff, giving us feedback on services, and much more.
Why is it important?
We want people affected by dementia to be at the heart of everything we do and this is key to our strategy.
To ensure people affected by dementia are enabled and supported to take an active role in all aspects of the Society’s work.
To enable people affected by dementia to influence the decision making at board and senior levels.
To ensure people affected by dementia are routinely involved a co-producers of our services and resources.
