Our vision

Our vision is a world where people are free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.

Without effective treatments, one in three children born today will die with dementia. Today, there are no dementia survivors but research can change this.

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the world’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, uniting the big thinkers in the field and funding the innovative science that will deliver a cure.

Our mission is to bring about the first life-changing dementia treatment by 2025.

With your support, we’ll focus our energies in four key areas of action to make this mission a reality.

  • Understand the diseases that cause dementia.
  • Diagnose people earlier and more accurately.
  • Reduce risk, backed by the latest evidence.
  • Treat dementia effectively.

Through these important strands of work, we’re bringing about breakthroughs that will change lives.
