Current Research Opportunities


CADR is looking for members of the public to assist us with one of our key activities – “Publish and disseminate research findings and lay summaries”.

Our aim is to make research findings more accessible to the public, by promoting lay summaries through publications, at events, and by electronic and social media.

Please watch the below summary and contact us if you would like to find out more:

We are proud to host Join Dementia Research in Wales which now holds more than one thousand volunteers in Wales.

This is an online platform to match up volunteers interested in taking part in dementia research with researchers looking for potential participants. Anyone, with or without dementia, over the age of 18 can register as a volunteer or sign-up for someone else as long as they have given their consent.

Registration can be via the website, via the telephone helplines, or using a paper registration form; and volunteers can choose which studies they would like to hear more about.

Kat Algar-Skaife coordinates JDR for Wales, which includes promoting it at conferences and providing training to researchers wishing to use it. ( )


The North Wales Dementia Network has resulted in numerous collaborations between its members. Involving people living with dementia and carers is at the heart of the network has increased the members understanding of challenges and priorities for the future, encouraging ideas from grassroots to stimulate greater collaboration and set priorities. The team are very willing to share the network with other regions that may be interested in this method of building strong communities.
