Alzheimer's Society

Alzheimer's Society is the UK 's leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. Dementia affects over 800,000 people in the UK.

The Society provides information and support to people with any form of dementia and their carers through our publications, National Dementia Helpline, website and more than 2,000 local services throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We support health and social care professionals by delivering high quality education, resources and training. We influence politicians and policy-makers, and campaign for better quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers and greater understanding of dementia.

We also fund innovative research in the areas of cause, cure, care and prevention. We work with scientists and people affected by dementia to ensure that the medical and social research programmes we fund have a positive impact on people's lives.
