Dementia is the leading cause of death in the UK and we know it will affect over one million people by 2025. It’s also incredibly expensive to our economy at £26bn a year – more than cancer and heart disease combined.

But we believe there’s hope. Research happening today will bring about the treatments of tomorrow, and we have a duty to ensure the health system is ready to get those treatments to people with dementia as quickly as possible.
