We are hugely excited to have won the 2023 Dementia Hero Award for Research and Innovation! This is great news, not only for the Pioneers who have shaped the programme at every stage, but for the several hundred people with dementia who have been involved in all the individual research projects. We can now call Dementia Enquirers an ‘award-winning programme’!

Many of the Pioneers joined Philly and Rachael at the awards ceremony at the Grand Hotel, Birmingham. Food and wine were consumed, and a huge cheer went up when we heard that we had won! This award means such a lot to all of us who have worked so hard.
