Organise your own skydive
Organise your own skydive
Make it your own. Make it matter.
Organise your own skydive and raise money to power dementia research so that we can find a cure. We can’t do it alone, but together we can beat it.
Sign up for a parachute jump at an airfield of your choice, then make it matter by fundraising for Alzheimer's Society. Every pound you raise will help us support more people affected by dementia.
If you have already booked or are planning to organise your own skydive, make it matter and order a free fundraising pack today.
If you would prefer to book your jump through Skyline, the company that we work with, please visit our tandem skydiving page and sign up to one of 18 airfields in the UK.

How much do I have to fundraise?
Because you are paying for your jump yourself, there’s no minimum fundraising target - we are grateful for any amount that you raise ahead of your skydive! The more you raise, the more you will be helping people affected by dementia.

How your money helps
Your skydive could have a life-changing impact for people affected by dementia:
£200 could speed up the search for an effective treatment for vascular dementia by paying for a year’s worth of clinical trial drugs.
£590 could provide a space for people worried about dementia to connect, tell their stories and support each other by funding our online community Talking Point for a weekend.
£1,040 could support people with dementia to keep doing the activities they love and try new things by funding a Side by Side service for a week. Volunteers support people with dementia to do whatever they enjoy, from going to a football match to visiting a café for lunch.
