People living with dementia and their carers have the opportunity to participate in research.
The focus of Joining Dementia Research is to increase the recruitment of volunteers, increase the numbers on the research register, match them to appropriate studies, and increase participation whilst informing volunteers of research opportunities. Anyone, with or without dementia, can register as a volunteer or sign-up for someone else, providing that you have their consent. Signing up is the first step in becoming involved in supporting vital research studies.
