Day Centre Research Forum
DCRF is a forum for discussion and learning focused on day centre settings for different groups of adults who would like to continue to live in the community. Our primary focus is on day centres for older people, and others with care and support needs, including those arising from dementia, complex disabilities or long-term conditions, end of life support needs, and homelessness.
The Forum provides an opportunity for researchers, people working in the field and others with an interest in the area to gather and discuss quality of provision and care, and to network with each other.
This forum is part of the work of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) South London’s work. The NIHR funds local collaborations to support applied health research and research on implementation of health and care evidence into day-to-day practice. NIHR ARCs support applied health and care research that responds to, and meets, the needs of local populations and local health and care systems.
