Alzheimer’s Research UK firmly believes in the power of research to create a world free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.
Dementia is a progressive and ultimately fatal condition that affects 850,000 people in the UK. Dementia devastates lives by robbing people of their ability to think, reason and remember. There are no effective treatments for dementia, which means that nobody survives a diagnosis.
Behind every person with dementia there’s a network of family and friends. It affects every gender, ethnicity and age.
We are the UK’s leading research charity aiming to defeat dementia. We power world-class studies that give us the best chance of beating dementia sooner, and are dedicated to funding the best quality science and the most ambitious ideas.
We are relentless in our mission to defeat dementia. With your support, we can bring more people together to do even more.
