  • Alzheimer's Society

    Alzheimer’s Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity, there for anyone affected by any form of dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Dementia can happen to anyone and at the moment there's no cure.

    Currently there are around 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and the number is set to rise to 1 million by 2021.

    Alzheimer's Society passionately believe that life doesn't end when dementia begins. They help anyone affected by dementia, and do everything they can to keep people with dementia connected to their lives and the people who matter most.

    They provide practical and emotional support to help people live well with dementia, and invest in world-class research with the ultimate goal of defeating it.


  • How you can help

    If you’d like to find out more about supporting Alzheimer's Society and help make a difference to the lives of people with dementia, then you can cheer our colleagues through any charity events, visit their website or make a donation.

  • What we'll be doing

    Our fundraising partnership will last for two years and will include a range of activities, including us getting involved with the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends. Dementia Friends sessions will help our colleagues to understand a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and what actions they can take.

    We’ll also be taking part in various charity events to raise money that will contribute towards the funding of dementia support workers, and make a positive difference to the lives of those with the condition.

    Support workers help people with dementia and carers deal with the daily challenges they face. They develop coping strategies and prevent crisis situations, as well as enabling people with dementia to remain independent for longer.
