Together we can make sure dementia remains a national priority


Help us make an impact

Over 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK. Unless a treatment can be found, this number will rise to over one million by 2025 and over two million by 2050. Our vision is of a world where people are free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia, but to achieve this we need the continued support of the UK Government.

With the help of our supporters we’ve made great progress in making dementia a national priority, and initiatives like the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia have changed the dementia research landscape for the better. Now we need your help to make sure the momentum isn’t lost.

Sign up to be an ARUK Campaigner, and we’ll send you everything you need to get started. We’ll also make sure you receive our regular e-newsletter, so you’ll be the first to find out about our policy work and about new ways to get involved.

Whether you write to your MP, attend a parliamentary event or help Alzheimer’s Research UK feed into a policy consultation, you’ll be standing up for the needs of people with dementia and their families.
