Organisation Summary

The University of Bradford’s Centre for Applied Dementia Studies is a centre of excellence engaged in research, education and training in dementia care. Our work to support people to live well with dementia was recognised by the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education. We are engaged in an ambitious portfolio of applied dementia research which informs our online teaching and face-face training and consultancy. We are at the forefront of using research to enhance the lives of people with dementia and their families, and to support the practitioners and professionals who work with and care for them.

Why is your organisation committed to the NDAA and the Dementia Statements?

The person living with dementia, and their supporter/carer, are at the centre of all of our research, teaching and training and we actively involve them in all of these activities. We are committed to improving the wellbeing of people at all stages of the dementia journey and to collaborative, working with people affected by dementia, practitioners and professionals to achieve this. Thus our aims and values are aligned to the NDAA and the dementia statements, and being a member of the NDAA keeps us in touch with innovations and aspirations for ensuring the rights of people affected by dementia.
