About Us

This site is managed by Dr Nicholas Jenkins, Dr Anna Jack-Waugh and Dr Louise Ritchie from the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).

Following our ‘Dementia & Multi-Species Caring’ workshop in May 2019 (funded by the British Society of Gerontology) we set up this site as forum for continuing conversations about the role of animals within dementia research, policy & practice.

In August 2919, we were awarded funding from the Wellcome Trust’s Small Grant in Humanities & Social Sciences to develop a multi-disciplinary network & programme of multi-species dementia research.

If you are interested in finding out more about this project, and potentially joining the network, please get in touch using our contact form.
