How do I organise my skydive?

Find a location and airfield of your choice, and book your jump on a date that suits you.

Can we take part as a group?

Yes! The more the merrier. Once you have your location and date, sign everyone else up with Skyline. Once you have done so, please let Skyline and us know how many people will be in your team. You can create a JustGiving page as a group or individually.

How your money helps 

Your accelerated freefall could have a life-changing impact for people affected by dementia:

£50 means 312 people can access Talking Point, our online safe space, where a trouble shared can become a trouble halved

£60  could pay for a blood test in a clinical trial that aims to find out more whether existing drugs could treat small vessel disease, a major cause of vascular dementia

£130 could fund one day of a talented PhD researcher's time increasing our understanding of the causes, prevention and treatment of dementia
