Trial support for carers who don’t speak English

UCL are applying for additional funding to translate, adapt and test iSupport in at least one other language in the UK. Find out how you can take part.

University College London (UCL) are currently delivering a trial evaluating the effectiveness of the World Health Organisation iSupport intervention for family caregivers of people with dementia. However, the intervention is only currently available for people who speak English, meaning that many do not have access. UCL are applying for additional funding to translate, adapt and test iSupport in at least one other language in the UK – probably Punjabi, though this will be driven by those available to work with UCL on this. If your local Age UK has links to groups of local carers who do not speak English and would like to take part, please contact Aimee Spector as soon as possible at a.spector@ucl.ac.uk. Thank you.
