Why is IUAD so important?

There are currently 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK. With no cure and limited treatments, one in three people will develop the condition in their lifetime.

This disease has a devastating personal impact, but also far-reaching consequences for society as a whole – it currently costs the UK economy over £34 billion every single year.

What has IUAD achieved?

So far, IUAD has raised over £8 million to help fund Alzheimer’s Society’s support services and research programme, providing help for today and hope for tomorrow.

IUAD is also committed to driving awareness across the industry of the support available to staff and customers affected by the disease.
