As Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK have joined forces for a special year-long campaign to transform attitudes to dementia and power ground-breaking research. 

We know research can end dementia. The Dementia Revolution is a unique opportunity to power the most ambitious dementia research endeavour the UK has ever seen – the UK Dementia Research Institute. 700 researchers in 6 centres across 3 nations, working tirelessly to find better treatments and a cure – revolutionising dementia research. 

Our scientists will pioneer breakthroughs, but only together can we bring dementia out of the shadows so people living with the condition can lead more fulfilling lives.

We want you to stand with us to overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure. Together we’ll be an unstoppable force that will transform lives. 

Together we are the Dementia Revolution.
