"Without Government intervention, I am concerned that charities like Alzheimer’s Research UK will be unable to cope. Ministers must listen to the sector and look again at what additional measures and financial support can be made available."

"I pledge my support for dementia research and will continue to hold the Government to account on their promise to double dementia research funding."
"Dementia is so cruel. I will keep doing all I can in Parliament to support the vital effort to find life changing treatments for Alzheimer’s. The Government must urgently deliver on their commitment to double funding for dementia research."
"Research towards new treatments for dementia should be a priority. Let's make a future without dementia a reality."
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.
How are we going to find a cure?
There are six priorities that are essential in our efforts to find a cure for dementia.
Earlier detection and intervention
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
