How can I take part in dementia research?

As a participant 

It's vital people with and without dementia take part in research to develop new treatments and improve the care and support available to people affected by dementia. 

This could involve taking part in a drug trial or you could simply provide a blood sample. You could be asked to complete a survey, have a brain scan or take part in a focus group or interview with researchers to share your experience of dementia. 

As a Research Network volunteer

If you'd like to work alongside Alzheimer's Society and researchers to ensure research is relevant and important to people affected by dementia. You might be interested to join our Research Network of patient and public involvement volunteers.
