Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project

The Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project (DEEP) aims to explore, support, promote and celebrate groups and projects led by or actively involving people with dementia across the UK that were influencing services and policies affecting the lives of people with dementia.

The first phase of DEEP was a one-year project that finished in 2012 but a new, three year phase began in 2013. This will help build the capacity of existing groups, support the emergence of new groups and help develop a network linking these groups together.

DEEP is a collaboration between the Mental Health Foundation and Innovations in Dementia, supported by the Alzheimer's Society and funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
