Norwich Research Park
Norwich Research Park is home to a wealth of world class research. Its 3,000 scientists and clinicians work in some of the areas of greatest importance to society today, food and health. The unique mix that blends a major university teaching hospital with a leading university and internationally important Research Institutes provides an unbroken chain, each part aiding the progression of another, where our people are gaining new knowledge of soil, plants, therapeutics and diagnostics, food, nutrition, health and healthy ageing, all underpinned by world leading genomics.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
The NRP is a major global research centre, where one of its research priorities is healthy aging. In addition the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital Foundation Trust is a member of the NRP and is a major deliverer of dementia care in the community it serves.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Our work will always be limited by the available funding for this important work.
Dementia Relevant Research
We will continue to undertake globally important research in this area, seeking sustained and new investment wherever possible.

Championing the cause
We will also use our regional and national presence to champion the cause of dementia and raise awareness in wider society.
