Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity, here for anyone affected by any form of dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our mission is to support people with dementia to live well today and fight for a world without dementia tomorrow.
We provide information and practical and emotional support and we invest in world-class research with the ultimate goal of defeating it. We fund research into cause, cure, care and prevention of all forms of dementia across the UK including Scotland and are committed to spending at least £100 million on research over the next decade.
We also campaign to improve public understanding of dementia and the devastating impact it can have, and make sure it's taken seriously and acted on by our governments. Dementia can happen to anyone and Alzheimer’s Society is here to help. Visit our website www.alzheimers.org.uk.
Dr Doug Brown, Director of Research and Development at Alzheimer’s Society said:
“Dementia is a growing, global problem and encouraging researchers from a wide variety of backgrounds to collaborate and share ideas is one of the best ways that we can find a solution. Research in this area is desperately underfunded and so schemes like these are vitally important as they help to drive forward much needed innovation and a better understanding of the condition.”
