Of the leading causes of death, dementia is the fastest rising health condition in the UK and the biggest long term health challenge we face. Investment in research is key to making the breakthroughs we need to deliver life-changing treatments. And that investment must also be channelled into the right areas.

Our team works closely with government, parliamentarians and people affected by dementia to put key issues on the political agenda. We aim to keep the focus on the government policies that can have the biggest impact for research and for people living with dementia.

Brain Health

We’re raising awareness of the importance of brain health to reduce dementia risk, and urging government to deliver public health policy that promotes healthier lifestyles.


We’re working to create a strong environment for dementia research in the UK to support the development and delivery of new treatments.


We want to ensure every person in the UK with dementia can receive an early and accurate diagnosis. This is crucial for taking part in research and accessing the right care and treatment.
