The group carries out multidisciplinary, policy and practice relevant social scientific research with particular emphasis on people with dementia and those who support and care for them. Our research has a strongly applied focus, and is relevant for multiple stakeholders. The perspectives of people with dementia, their supporters and carers are central, and we seek to understand their everyday lives and find ways of promoting well being and better quality of life. We work with researchers, clinicians and social care practitioners from many disciplines across the University and with national and international colleagues in Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia.
