Our Research Network

Research is not just for researchers. Your personal experience of dementia is invaluable. Join our Research Network to make research relevant and impactful for all those living with dementia today and in the future.

Who are our volunteers?

Our Research Network volunteers all have personal experience of dementia - living with the condition or as a carer or former carer.

They have been working in partnership with the society and researchers across the UK for 20 years to ensure that research is relevant, credible and has an impact for everyone affected by dementia.
