Research Event

The Young Dementia Network would like to invite you to their second research event.

This event will provide an opportunity for people living with, or affected by, young onset dementia to connect with researchers and student researchers currently researching in the field of young onset dementia.

The focus of the day follows on from the research event we held last year where six topics for further research emerged. Young Dementia Network members have chosen three priorities

• Employment

• Health and social care education

• Family interventions (including children and young people)

We hope to secure funding to make this event free to attend but may have to charge up to £11 per person.

Monday 24 June 10.30am-4.00pm

Who will be attending:

•      People living with young onset dementia 

•      Family members and carers

•      Experienced researchers

•      Early career researchers

•      Junior researchers
