Volunteering for research

Volunteering to take part in dementia research studies can be rewarding for people with and without dementia, and for carers. For someone in the early or mild stages of dementia taking part in clinical trials helps researchers to test new disease modifying treatments. Taking part in research will help to improve our understanding of dementia and find new treatments.
