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.
How can you support dementia research?
Anyone with personal experience of dementia can volunteer. Our passionate and dedicated volunteers:
- Help us to make decisions about the research we fund
- Monitor the progress of our projects
- Support researchers in every stage of their work from developing grant applications through to sharing the results of their work
and much, much more.
I'm a researcher and would like to work with people affected by dementia
If you are a dementia researcher funded by Alzheimer's Society, please contact our team.
However, if you are funded by another organisation, find out more about public involvement support through our Research partnerships programme.
Seeing the impact
We have always been aware that researchers and volunteers value and enjoy collaborating together to drive forward dementia research. Find out more in the full report.
