Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading support and research charity for people with dementia and those who care for them.
There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to one million by 2025. This is why we need your support so urgently to help people today, and to find a cure for tomorrow. Payroll giving is one of the easiest and most flexible methods of charitable giving, providing a reliable and vital stream of income. Giving regularly through your pay allows us to plan for the future and help care for the 850,000 people living with dementia.
We now have over 3,000 services providing support to people with dementia and their carers across local communities. Through campaigning and lobbying we strive to influence government policies and raise awareness of the challenges faced by people affected by dementia. Our Helpline now operates into the evenings and last year we supported over 40,000 people. Additionally, we had over 58,000 users of our online discussion form, Talking Point. We helped influence the government to commit £150 million to a world leading Dementia Research Institute, as a founding partner we have committed £50 million.
Through our research programme we work to improve the knowledge we have about dementia and its treatment - and to pursue the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
