We are delighted to launch the application process for Dementia Enquirers grants. These give DEEP groups a chance to carry out their own research about a question that they are really interested in.

Our first projects included research about living alone with dementia, Admiral Nurses, using Alexa, driving, transport and more. Together we learnt a lot about people with dementia being in the ‘driving seat of research’. People told us that they grew in confidence and that it was great to learn new skills.

You can apply for between £5000-£8000.

We do want to stress that you can use the grant for quite simple research – for example, you could run a survey, do some interviews or group discussions. The grant can also pay for people’s time – including group members and any supporters. We especially want to encourage groups who haven’t had a Dementia Enquirers grant before.

If you would like more information, and an application form please contact Rachael Litherland by email rachael@myid.org.uk

The deadline for applications is Friday 25th June 2021.

We will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday 19th May if you want to talk anything through.
