Accelerator Programme

Our Accelerator Programme is designed to support people in developing and accelerating their product and service innovations to deliver help and hope to people living with dementia.

What could you do with an idea and up to £100k of funding?

Do you have an idea or product that will transform the lives of people living with dementia?

Engineers, designers, developers, innovators, academics, entrepreneurs, or anyone with a good idea – we want to hear from you.

Your idea could be a simple product that makes an everyday task easier for a person living with dementia. You may have an innovative idea for a new product or service.

To bring your idea to life, our programme offers a 12-month partnership including: 

  • Up to £100K of funding
  • Expert innovation and dementia support for 12 months
  • Peer-to-peer learning with our Innovation Collective
  • Opportunities to learn from people living with dementia through co-creation.
  • Support during the application process.

Accelerator applications are now closed.

Who can apply to the Accelerator Programme?

We look for applications from teams or individuals at any stage of the product development journey, from a great idea that needs testing through to proven products that need a push to maximise their reach. We particularly welcome applications from underrepresented groups.

By backing passionate people with innovative ideas, we’ll accelerate the development of new products and services with the potential to benefit thousands of people.
