Alzheimer Scotland is Scotland’s national dementia charity. The aim is to make sure nobody faces dementia alone. They provide support and information to people with dementia, their carers and families, they campaign for the rights of people with dementia and fund vital dementia research.

They have Dementia Resource Centres in 21 different locations across Scotland. Those centres provide a safe and friendly environment for people with dementia and their carers to visit and take part in a wide variety of activity groups.

They are very proud of their 24 hour Freephone Dementia Helpline which provides information and emotional support to people with dementia, carers, families, friends and professionals.

There is a network of Dementia Advisors employed by Alzheimer Scotland who work in local communities to support people with a diagnosis by giving advice and information.

They have over 9,000 members, over 90,000 Dementia Friends and we are supported by over 1,000 volunteers. We employ around 550 full and part-time staff, mainly in our service-provision projects across Scotland.
