Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) Wales:

Research Centre


Who are we?

The DSDC Wales Research Centre is part of the the School of Medical and Health Sciences at Bangor University.

Our aim is to improve the quality of life and well-being of older people and people with dementia and their supporters, through carrying out and applying relevant research.

We are internationally known for:

  • Our high-quality research in areas including resilience, social exclusion, ageing well, carer well-being, & intergenerational working.
  • Developing and evaluating creative psychosocial interventions for people with dementia and carers.
  • Our contribution to policy development and implementation.
  • Delivery of evidence-based training and advice to all who are looking to improve the quality of life, care, and support for people with dementia and those who care for them.
  • Creating and supporting Dementia Networks in North and Mid Wales.

Our reach:

We are committed to working with all those who strive to improve the quality of services for people with dementia and their supporters in Wales.

We recognise the importance of:

  • The Welsh language,
  • The cultural heritage of Wales,
  • The balance of urban and rural areas,
  • The differences in health and social care systems across the UK,

that makes Wales a unique place to live, work, and grow older.

We believe it is important to have an Ageing and Dementia Research Centre in North Wales to ensure that the values of those living in Wales are recognised and represented in ageing and dementia research, policy, and practice.

At its core, our work aims to support those who make up our local communities, and the wider society of Wales.

Whilst local communities are at the heart of what we do, our work is of an internationally recognised standard and contributes to a wider body of research and knowledge that aims to improve the lives of as many as possible, locally, nationally, and internationally.
