Business group chooses its Charity of the Year for 2017
Alzheimer’s Research UK is 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.
Our pioneering work focuses on prevention, treatment and cure. We are energising a movement across society to support, fund and take part in dementia research. We aim to empower people across all generations through greater understanding of dementia. Together we have the power to defeat dementia. As the UK's leading dementia research charity we firmly believe in the power of research to create a world free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.
As research experts, we work to make a real difference to people’s lives – now and in the future – by funding world-class pioneering scientists to find preventions, treatments and a cure for dementia. There are over 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia today and this number will increase as our population ages Around every person with dementia are family members and friends, in fact 24.5 million of us in the UK know someone affected by dementia.
The only way to beat dementia is through research, and so we promise to use your donations to fund the very best. The number of UK researchers has risen by 91% in dementia. Last year our supporters’ donations helped to fund 62 new projects and pioneering initiatives. Every £1 invested in fundraising, raises £3 to spend on research and other charitable activities.
None of this would be possible without the support of people like you. We are extremely pleased and excited to be working with the East Devon Business Initiative in 2017 and having you join us in the fight back against dementia.
