Alzheimer's Society (Full member)
Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading care and research charity for people with dementia and those who care for them.
There are 700,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to one million by 2025.
Alzheimer's Society is a membership organisation, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Many of its 25,000 members have personal experience of dementia, as carers, health professionals or people with dementia themselves, and their experiences help to inform our work.
The Society's fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through its branches, it touches the lives of over 30,000 people every week, providing practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers. Every year, more than a million people make use of the information the organisation provides.
Through campaigning and lobbying, the Society strives to influence government policies and raise awareness of the challenges faced by people with dementia and the people who care for them. And through its reserach programme it works to improve the knowledge about dementia and its treatment - and pursuing the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
