Alzheimer’s Research UK exists for a cure and it’s vital that everyone can benefit from the progress we’re making in dementia research.

Over half of us know someone affected by dementia, it affects people from every walk of life. However, we know that some groups within our society are more heavily impacted by the condition, either being more at risk of the diseases that cause dementia or more likely to experience poorer health outcomes as a result of them.

Our work must reach every person with dementia and those around them, whatever their identity, experience and perspective. We aim to reach and connect meaningfully with communities across the UK, providing high-quality health information and opportunities to participate in our work.

We are committed to being an inclusive organisation where people can make a full contribution and where we value a diverse range of views.

Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Commitments

Our EDI Commitments guide our approach:

  • We will fund research that is representative of the population living with dementia and we will ensure that our funding processes are inclusive and support a diverse research workforce.
  • Our approach to our work will be inclusive. We strive to represent all those affected by dementia and to help to ensure dementia inequalities are addressed.
  • We will champion the equity, diversity and inclusion of our people.
