New Community to help you connect – When we first consulted with Early Career Researchers to help us understand what you wanted from our website, we were told that you wanted a supportive community space. A place where you could converse with your peers, a safe place to ask questions and connect with other researchers from other institutions working in the same space.
Twitter is great, but we know that some discussions need to be in more than 280 characters, and you might not want to share in such a public forum. So we have created the NIHR Dementia Researcher WhatsApp Group Chat, just for you.Click Here To Join 
We want to test the usefulness of this app as a community space for you and see how things develop. If successful, we can see creating a number of groups for different topics e.g. Your area of research, grant applications, help and support. In the meantime, we have a single group as a try out.
WhatsApp is available on your mobile phone and desktop, and you can click the link above, or scan the QR to join. When you arrive, make your first message an introduction, name, where you work, what you’re researching.
Our team will keep an eye on the posts, and try to get the conversation started.
