Research which we are supporting


An investigation into carer’s attitudes towards seeking help for their psychological wellbeing

This is an undergraduate psychology student questionnaire study looking at factors that may influence whether carers seek help for their own psychological wellbeing, which is especially important as barriers to services have increased due to demands associated with the pandemic and associated changes to services.  If you would like to take part please click through this link to the survey. It should take no longer than 15-20 minutes.

 Carers’ experiences of caring for a family member or friend with Dementia during the COVID-19 Pandemic 2

Have you been supporting your spouse, partner or family member living with dementia to live at home during the pandemic?
If so, we would like to hear about your experiences.
We are researchers at the University of Manchester, and this research is funded by the National Institute for Health Research. The research is being carried out by Professor Debora Price, Dr. Philip Drake,  Neil Allen, and Dr. Jayne Astbury. 
In this study we are interested in finding out how people currently supporting a spouse, partner or family member with dementia to live at home in the UK have been managing things during the pandemic.
We are interested in hearing from you whether you live with the person you support or live elsewhere. If this describes your situation, we would very much like to hear from you, and we hope you are able to take the time to answer some questions for us. 
This questionnaire will take you about 30 - 45 minutes to complete.  You do not need to complete it in one sitting. 
The survey will remain open until the 30th June 2022.
