Get involved

This is your Network.

We want to collaborate with as many health and care professionals as possible. Here are some of the different ways you can get involved.

Join a group

The following groups are currently looking for new members and representatives:

This steering group aims to support a unified approach to IPOS in Greater Manchester.

This group offers influence and strategic leadership to develop and deliver EPaCCS across Greater Manchester and Eastern Cheshire.

This special interest group supports all aspects of education and training. It meets quarterly for educators to network and share best practice.

Have your say

Have your say in the work that matters. Here are some local and national surveys and consultations looking for your views.

Join Dementia Research – a place to register your interest in taking part in vital dementia research

When you sign up to Join Dementia Research, the information you provide is used to match you to studies you may be able to take part in, both online, nationally and in your local area. The service connects registered volunteers with dementia researchers across the UK who are looking for people to join their studies.

You can review your study matches once you register and then it’s your decision whether to take part. Taking part means you will make a real difference to the future of dementia care, diagnosis and treatment.  Join here.

Help IMPACT to make an impact on the way adult social care is delivered 

IMPACT (‘IMProving Adult Care Together’) is the new UK centre for implementing evidence in adult social care. They’re currently testing a number of different delivery models via pilot projects across different parts of the UK – but all their work is based on learning by doing, on providing practical support in the realities of local services and on using evidence to make a difference to the way people work and to people’s lives. Perhaps unlike other sectors, their definition of ‘evidence’ includes different types of research, the lived experience of people drawing on care and support and their carers, and the practice knowledge of social care staff.
They’ve been talking to different people who draw on care and support and who work in adult social care across the UK about how best to use the funding they’ve received to make as much of a difference as possible. As part of this, they’d like to connect with nurses working in adult social care.
If you’d like to find out more about their work and how to get involved, you can sign up for regular updates via their website.
