On 14 August 2022, the Prime Minister launched a national mission to tackle dementia in memory of the late Dame Barbara Windsor.

He called for volunteers to join ‘Babs’ Army’ and sign up to Join Dementia Research. Since then we’ve welcomed hundreds of new people to the service from all over the UK.

About Join Dementia Research

Join Dementia Research is a national registry enabling anyone over 18 with or without a diagnosis to sign up to take part in vital dementia research. We match volunteers with researchers and taking part is optional.

Signing up is easy, simply fill out our online form or click ‘Register by phone’ fill out your name and contact number and one of our charity helplines will call you back. 

Since the service was set up in 2015, there have been over 60,000 enrolments onto studies through Join Dementia Research.

Our amazing volunteers

Our volunteers played a key role in the US and Europe decisions about the Alzheimer’s drug aducanumab, because 30% of the participants on UK clinical trials came through Join Dementia Research.  

There are currently many drug studies in development and as well as these, we offer a range of different research opportunities including online questionnaires, focus groups, scans and memory tests. 

Hear from our volunteers Maureen and Derek who discuss their experience of the service.

We need more people to take part in research, so we encourage you to join us and help to improve diagnosis, treatment and care.
