Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project


The Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project (DEEP) aims to explore, support, promote and celebrate groups and projects led by or actively involving people with dementia across the UK that were influencing services and policies affecting the lives of people with dementia.

The first phase of DEEP was a one year project that finished in 2012 but a new, three year phase began in 2013. This will help build the capacity of existing groups, support the emergence of new groups and help develop a network linking these groups together.

DEEP is a collaboration between the Mental Health Foundation, Innovations in Dementia, supported by the Alzheimer’s Society and funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

The map below gives contact details of where some of these groups can be found.
