LEAP (Lived Experience Advisory Panel)

The LEAP (Lived Experience Advisory Panel) group with Dementia UK staff

Dementia UK’s Lived Experience Advisory Panel (LEAP) was set up in 2017 and is made up of people living with dementia and family carers.

LEAP supports the work of Dementia UK by providing feedback and advice and raising awareness of Admiral Nurses amongst local decision makers.

LEAP has supported Dementia UK by advising and commenting on Dementia UK information resources, surveys and the Dementia UK Website.

It has met and worked with other groups around the country to support involvement and engagement with other people affected by dementia and to raise awareness of Admiral Nursing.

LEAP also aims to help increase the number of Admiral Nurses available to people affected by dementia. LEAP has also helped to develop an Admiral Nurse ‘Influencing Pack’ for LEAP members and other interested parties to use in promoting Dementia UK and Admiral Nurses locally.
