What is Involvement?

The Involvement team offers opportunities to people affected by dementia to use their personal experiences to help shape the work that Alzheimer's Society does. 

We enable people living with dementia, their carers, friends and family, to be a force for change, within Alzheimer's Society and beyond it.

Why is it important to us to learn from lived experience?

We want to be there for anyone affected by dementia. We can only do that when we have a diverse range of lived experience informing and shaping all we do. This is key to Alzheimer's Society's corporate strategy.
