Engineers, designers, developers, innovators, entrepreneurs or anyone with an idea for a simple product that makes an everyday task easier for a person living with dementia can now apply for support of up to £100,000 of funding and business support.
The funding is available from the Alzheimer’s Society Accelerator Programme to develop either products or services which during the 12 months will be developed and evaluated to ensure that they will improve the lives of people affected by dementia, and are ready to scale up to support larger groups of people.
The Alzheimer Society is looking for applications from teams or individuals at any stage of the product development journey, from an idea that needs testing through to proven products that need a push to maximise their reach.
As well as financial investment successful applicants will be supported by an expert innovation buddy from the Alzheimer’s Society.
The closing date for applications is the 7th November 2019.
