Collaborating for change

DCAN uses the power of networks to tackle key challenges for people with dementia.

We channel our work through our #DCAN Enquiries, which unite us around key questions to find answers together.


Pre-Memory Assessment

Since Covid-19 there has been an increase in the time people need to wait for their memory assessment appointment. We’re working with the NHS to understand what people need, and what support is available.

Peer Leadership Development Programme

Do you want to learn more about personalised care? The Peer Leadership Development Programme on FutureLearn helps people with lived experience learn about personliased care so they are able to feel more confident discussing it with health professionals. This course can help you make a positive impact in your own, or your family members situation, and you can even go on to complete further levels if you want to expand your learning to be able to influence the health system!
