Your support is funding pioneering dementia research that will bring about the first life-changing dementia treatment.

At the moment dementia is incurable and available treatments are limited. But our cutting-edge research is on the brink of life-changing breakthroughs. In the past year alone we have invested a record-breaking £21.1 million into dementia research. This is only possible because of the generosity of people like you.

Your support means so much to everyone living with dementia in the UK, and the 34 million people who know someone affected by it. You can read some of these personal stories here.

With your support we can develop treatments that will keep people connected to their families, their worlds and themselves for longer. Research can make the heartbreak of dementia a thing of the past.
