Over 40,000 volunteers sign up to Join Dementia Research
We’re delighted that over 40,000 people have now registered as volunteers with Join Dementia Research.
This is wonderful news – thank you so much to everyone who has signed up and helped us reach this milestone.
It’s people like you who are making a difference. By registering your interest in research, you’re helping us bring more researchers and volunteers together. This means more studies can reach their potential.
In response to the announcement, Minister for Care Caroline Dinenage said:
“We need to see more progress in dementia research. Our world leading Dementia 2020 Challenge has made impressive headway in how we treat and support people with dementia and our investment in research is driving innovation, but we need the backing of more people with the condition to secure much needed breakthroughs.
“It’s incredible that 40,000 people have now registered with Join Dementia Research. With their support we have the opportunity to drive advances to benefit the hundreds of thousands of people living with the condition, and I encourage many more to consider standing by them to unite against dementia.”
Join Dementia Research was launched four years ago in February 2015 to support the Challenge on Dementia, and since then we’ve placed over 11,000 volunteers into studies.
We’re delighted that the service continues to grow.
Thank you all for your support so far. Please continue to spread the word about Join Dementia Research and help us reach the next 40,000 volunteers.
