Join Dementia Research is a nationwide online and telephone service that makes it easier for people to register their interest in volunteering for dementia research studies.
Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK. The only way to beat the condition is through research.
Anyone, with or without dementia, can register as a volunteer or sign up for someone else, providing it’s in their best interest.
Signing up is the first step in becoming involved in supporting vital research studies across the nation.
What is so special about the service?
You can see which studies your information matches to, and can also express an interest in finding out more about studies. However, there is absolutely no obligation to take part in any of the studies. Current research studies range from clinical trials of new treatments to surveys identifying what works in improving the quality of life of people with dementia.
