Dementia

Dementia affects 850,000 people in the UK and numbers are increasing, with over one million people estimated to have dementia by 2025; there is currently no cure. 

We are dedicated to funding and supporting world class research into dementia and raising awareness of how people can get involved in research - you can read about some of this research below.
