Join dementia research

Over 25 million people in the UK have a friend or family member with dementia and every 3.2 minutes someone develops dementia in the UK.

Dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face today. The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and other types of dementia is set to double over the next 30 years.

The only way to beat the condition is through medical research. Through research we can understand what causes the disease, develop effective treatments, improve care and hopefully one day find a cure

But for research to progress we need more people to take part in more studies. You don’t need to have dementia to help, there are studies for people without dementia.

When you sign up to Join Dementia Research, the information you provide is used to match you to studies you may be able to take part in, both online, nationally and in your local area. The service connects registered volunteers with dementia researchers across the UK who are looking for people to join their studies.

Taking part means you will make a real difference to the future of dementia care, diagnosis and treatment.
