NIHR Policy Research Unit in dementia and neurodegeneration wants to recruit and include diverse people from across England who live with memory and brain-related diseases like dementia, MS, Parkinson's, Huntington's and motor neurone disease, along with people who have cared for someone with one of these diseases. 

Your personal experience will help the NIHR research unit understand these conditions better and your input will improve research which will directly help people living with these diseases.

There are currently two types of opportunity:

  • Join the lived experience group and support research project

The lived experience group meets online about once a month for an hour, over three years. Members of the group will also support research projects in an advisory capacity to ensure that lived experience is included in all aspects of the research.

Time commitment for this role is 2-4 hours per month, including all meetings and preparation time. You will be reimbursed for your time and expenses.

  • Become a community champion

As a community champion you will help NIHR take their research into your community through event roadshows, ensuring that your voice is heard in these projects.

There is no monthly time commitment for this role. You will be reimbursed for your time and expenses when taking part in a project or event.

If you are interested, you are asked to complete this short form to provide some details about yourself  – closing date is 29th January.
