Bringing all stakeholders together, the event aims to share experience and knowledge around dementia practice and research in south London, with a specific focus on people affected by dementia from minority ethnic backgrounds. 

What is the Dementia Community Research Network?

The Dementia Community Research Network (DCRN) is a network of community organisations working with people living with dementia, patient and public involvement members, and dementia researchers in south London. 

Our goal is to create a safe and engaging space for people affected by dementia to be involved in research and, in doing so, widen involvement to better represent people affected by dementia from ethnic minority backgrounds.

About the event

The DCRN is delighted to host their first engagement event, open to anyone with an interest in dementia care, as well as community groups and dementia researchers from across south London.

With information stalls and exhibitions, there will be opportunities to connect with others, share experiences and learn more about the different community services across south London and current dementia research, how to join the DCRN, and how anyone affected by dementia can get involved in research. 

  • When: Thursday 9 May, 2.00-4.00pm 
  • Where? The Boardroom, Hambleden Wing, King’s College Hospital, Denmark Hill (near the main entrance, marked in brown on the map)
