Our influence

We work to develop policy that improves the lives of the millions of people affected by dementia in the UK and across the world.

Alzheimer’s Research UK is working tirelessly to defeat dementia, but it takes more than a single organisation to tackle a challenge this big. That’s why we work to ensure dementia is at the top of the political agenda, bringing together policymakers and other influential organisations around the world to tackle the condition. We also highlight the urgent need for more research into the condition and develop evidence-based policy to inform government decisions.
