Short Courses


We have recently launched our new “50 Shades of Dementia” short course training programme. These courses aim to provide university standard dementia training to people with a vested passion and interest or professional involvement in dementia care. We also welcome people living with dementia and family carers on the courses. Each course is delivered live online by an expert in the subject field and includes interactive activities, evidence-based theories and input from experts by experience who live with or are affected by dementia.

You can book on to courses here: Dementia Short Courses (
