Where your money goes
Alzheimer’s Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. We provide information and support to people with any form of dementia and their carers through our publications, National Dementia Helpline, website, and more than 2,000 local services. We campaign for better quality of life for people with dementia and greater understanding of dementia. We also fund an innovative programme of medical and social research into the cause, cure and prevention of dementia and the care people receive.
We run over 2,000 local services across England, Northern Ireland and Scotland that provide information and support to people affected by dementia. These include Singing for the Brain, Dementia Cafes, carer support groups, befriending services, and Dementia Advisers to name just a few.
National Dementia Helpline
Alzheimer’s Society’s National Dementia Helpline provides information, support, guidance and signposting to other appropriate organisations either by phone or email. We are constantly under pressure to cope with the amount of enquiries that we get, and promoting the helpline more widely and building its capacity will only be possible with the support of our valued donors.
Alzheimer's Society is committed to defeating dementia through research. We fund research into the cause, cure, care and prevention of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, to improve treatment for people today, and search for a cure for tomorrow.
Campaigning and lobbying
We campaign for a fairer deal for people with dementia and their carers. We work hard to raise awareness of dementia, both with the general public and health professionals, but always with key decision makers around the UK.
