Project-BannerAbout the OurPlace Project

OurPlace is a research project using digital mapping technologies to enable people living with dementia and their carers to map the places and spaces that matter.

It will identify important places, in a number of different communities, that are used and enjoyed every day as well as those places that may present challenges. This information will also be used to inform local action in each community.

OurPlace is funded by an Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation grant and conducted by researchers at the
University of Wollongong:

Dr Chris Brennan-Horley of the Australian Centre for Cultural Environmental Research

Dr Lyn Phillipson of the Centre for Health Initiatives.
