CADR Conference 2021 – A time of change; A time to change?


DAY 1 (23/03/2021)



DAY 2 (24/03/2021)



DAY 3 (25/03/2021)


OK Cupid do your best, while I Bumble around Tindering for my love, a hook-up or a FWB…!


This presentation will describe the rationale for the ‘COVID-19: Dating Apps, Social Connections, Loneliness and Mental Health in a pandemic’ project. Prior to the pandemic, dating apps have become an integral form for many citizens in society to elicit emotional, sexual, and intimate relationships and connections. However, little is known about the use, impacts, barriers, and enablers to using dating apps, pre-pandemic and even more so since the pandemic. However, given the phenomenal rise of dating apps, accessible for download via iTunes and Google Play Store, coupled with citizens young and old turning to alternative ways of finding a connection and/or companion, dating apps are here to stay.


Dementia Friends


Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about dementia. This session will provide easy to understand information about dementia, including useful analogies and five key messages. Parallel sessions will be offered in Welsh and English, so you can learn in your language of choice.
