Research volunteers are at the centre of StepUp for Research, which was developed in close consultation with members of the public who represent people living with dementia, their carers and their loved ones.
The Public Involvement Panel (PIP) is consulted as a sounding board to ensure that StepUp for Research addresses the needs and points of view of the members of the public who will engage with the service. PIP members were consulted on the naming and branding of the project, as well as the web content, and continue their role in advising on the messaging and ways to engage a wider community. Members of the PIP serve on a volunteer basis.
Our sincere thank you to our PIP members for their continuing guidance and counsel.
