    We now need to see action to deliver on the commitment to double dementia research funding.

    Now is the time for the political leadership that puts UK dementia research at the forefront of the global search for life-changing treatments.

    We need MPs support to find a cure.

    Better ways to predict the success of new drugs

    Make the UK the best place for dementia research

    Support and expand research infrastructure

    Better understanding of dementia risk factors

    Better data on the impact of dementia
