The Neighbourhoods: Our People, Our Places

The Neighbourhoods: Our People, Our Places project is part of an international research programme called Neighbourhoods and Dementia funded by the ESRC and NIHR (UK). The aim of the research project is to investigate: 1) how people living with dementia and their care partners experience their neighbourhoods and 2) the forms of support and help that are available (and not available) locally. With the support and input of people living with dementia we are developing an innovative dissemination and knowledge exchange programme to inform others of the findings from the research. By disseminating the findings in diverse and creative ways the work is informing public understandings of dementia as well as improving the everyday lives of people living with dementia.
