Campaign for dementia research

Ahead of the general election on Thursday 12 December, we need your support to ensure dementia research remains a national priority.

We’ll be urging the next government to commit just 1% of the condition’s total annual cost to the economy to research each year, so we can bring about life-changing treatments for dementia sooner..

Over the next few weeks, we’re asking you to lend your voice and strengthen our calls.

How can you get involved?
