In October 2014, the Dementia Research Network at the University of Northampton was re-launched, after consultation with its members, as a 'Dementia Friendly Community of Practice'. Our aim is to bring together like-minded individuals from across research, education, and practice to enhance the quality of care for people living with dementia and their carers in Northamptonshire and further afield. 

The aim of the CoP is to engage with a range of stakeholders to develop an informed and effective workforce so that people with dementia and their carers have better outcomes. To do this, we: 


  • Map knowledge and identify gaps

  • Co-ordinate existing groups

  • Problem solve and identify solutions

  • Share information and experiences

  • Document and report


We hope that the CoP will bring together like-minded individuals who have a passion for and are willing to influence the theory and practice of dementia care across Northamptonshire and beyond in order to improve the quality of the care experience for PwD and their carers.
