How you can help
Why we need your help
- On average in the UK just 62% of people living with the symptoms of dementia receive a diagnosis.
- Once people are diagnosed, they are often left without the necessary support.
- Dementia research is desperately underfunded compared to other conditions such as cancer, with the government investing 8 times less.
- People with dementia often have to pay huge amounts for their essential care
How you can make a difference
Join our campaigning network
We need you to help us make the case to improve the lives of people with dementia and their families. Join us in the fight against dementia by signing up to receive regular updates on our campaigns and details of easy ways to get involved. By signing up, you will join a movement of thousands of people committed to improving the lives of people living with dementia.
We often ask our campaigners to email or write to their MP about specific issues. Over the last year, your actions have helped us talk to over 200 MPs about how they can work to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. Your involvement has a huge impact on the success of our work. Watch our video of Debbie Abrahams MP talking about how effective contacting your MP really is (duration 2:55)
Become a Dementia Friend
People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. The Dementia Friendly Communities and the Dementia Friends initiative, with your help, can give people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia.
