A National Survey For Young Onset Dementia

Research Study – The Angela Project: Improving diagnosis and post-diagnostic support for younger people with dementia, families and supporters.

Please join University College London and the Universities of Bradford, Northampton and Surrey involved in a research study called the Angela Project. The Angela Project is dedicated to Angela, a lady with young onset dementia who went undiagnosed for 3 years before her symptoms were recognised. The project is to improve services and support for younger people living with dementia.

Currently, many younger people living with dementia and families receive limited services and support in the UK throughout the time they live with dementia. The Angela Project wants to understand how to improve support for younger people with dementia, families and supporters. From this work, they will produce information and guidance on best practice in diagnosis and post diagnostic support, which can inform others who seek to develop effective services.

If you live with a diagnosis of dementia, which was received before you reached the age of 65; or if you are related to, or supporting someone who received a diagnosis of dementia before the age of 65; The Angela Project are inviting you to complete a survey. You can complete it online by following this link: https://bradford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/the-improving-support-and-service-use-survey
