NALC and the University of Plymouth (UoP) is currently undertaking ground-breaking research on dementia in local (parish and town) councils. Due to the unfortunate COVID-19 crisis and the additional pressures put on local councils, we have decided to extend the deadline to 31st May 2020.

NALC and UoP believe that England's 10,000 local councils play an important role within communities to offer solutions to help tackle dementia. The research will aim to find out precisely what local councils are doing to help support their communities on dementia.

The research will begin on 24 February 2020 and will last around two months, closing on 17 April. In this period, an extensive survey will be completed by local councils. Once the data is collected and analysed, a joint report will be published, which will summarise what local councils are doing and give recommendations on what they can do to help make their communities healthier.

If you have any questions, please contact NALC at  or on 0207 290 0314.
