The Innovation team and Physical Activity team at Alzheimer’s Society have been working together on an innovation ‘sprint’ to help people with dementia to be active as part of their day to day lives, as early as possible after diagnosis.

After sprinting through the first few stages of this work, we have four co-designed ideas that we would like to get your feedback on. Please take a look below to vote and comment on these ideas (please ignore the banner saying 'submissions now closed'). You have two votes, but you can comment on any of the ideas. When commenting, please do reflect on some of the questions if you can that have been shared within each idea. The activity will close at midday (12pm) on Tuesday 19 April.

Following this activity, we will review all of your feedback and look to decide which idea(s) we will take forward into the next stage of the project.

Click 'more details' if you want to find out more about how we got to this stage.

Thank you so much for your time!
