What the Alzheimer’s Society does

The Alzheimer’s Society fights dementia through supporting people with dementia through our vital services such as the National Dementia Helpline, by fighting for societal change by campaigning nationally and locally to get dementia to the top of the agenda in government and roll out movements such as Dementia Friends and we work tirelessly to find a cure through our various research programmes.

How you'll be making a difference

There are currently around 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. This is projected to reach 1.6 million by 2040. The recent coronavirus pandemic has left most of these people cut off from the vital networks and loved ones that support them to perform everyday tasks and routines. In some cases, social isolation can irreversibly accelerate their condition.

Alzheimer’s Society is the only place many of these people can turn to, making our frontline services vital for hundreds of thousands of people. Our Dementia Advisers are providing support in communities all over the country to help people affected by dementia survive this crisis.
