We share the Alzeimer’s Society belief that people with dementia and their carers make a unique and valuable contribution to our work. Their knowledge and passion ensures our research funding is allocated to projects that address the real needs and concerns of people with dementia and their carers.

People with dementia and their carers play in important role in the ALzeimer’s Society research.

Alzheimer’s Society is a pioneer in public involvement in dementia research. Our Research Network is a team of over 250 carers, former carers and people with dementia. Research Network volunteers play an integral role in the research programme. Their duties include:

  • setting our research priorities
  • reviewing funding applications
  • sitting on grant funding panels
  • monitoring on-going projects funded by Alzheimer’s Society
  • telling others about the results of research and ensuring that outcomes are translated into tangible benefits for people affected by dementia.
