Our charity partner

We’ve been proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Society since 2016, providing support and raising money for the incredible work carried out by the charity.

Who are Alzheimer’s Society?

Alzheimer’s Society is the UK's leading dementia support and research charity. Dementia can happen to anyone and at the moment there's no cure.

In the UK alone, the number of people living with dementia is set to increase to over a million by 2021 and over two million by 2050, so it’s never been a better time to take action.

What we’ve been up to

Whether it’s dressing up, climbing mountains, baking goodies or bungee jumping, our colleagues have been doing their bit to help raise funds to pay for Dementia Support Workers.

Dementia Support Workers provide support for thousands of people affected by dementia across the UK, helping them to take control of their lives and make sense of what is happening to them.

Dementia Friends

'Dementia Friends' is a social action movement that aims to increase people’s understanding of the disease and inspire them to support those affected by dementia in the community.                   

Over 5,000 of our people at E.ON have already become Dementia Friends. We aim to offer all colleagues a chance to participate as part of our Alzheimer’s Society partnership.

Join the fight

There are loads of ways that you can help fight dementia too. The Alzheimer’s Society website shows what’s happening in your area, and provides fundraising tips and support too. 

Energy and dementia

People with dementia are particularly vulnerable to problems related to energy use and managing their energy.

To better understand the challenges, we funded the ‘Switch on to Dementia’ report and supported the creation of the dementia friendly utilities guide – research and recommendations on how energy companies can help people with dementia and their carers.
