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.

Where can I get a sponsorship form?

How do I organise my skydive?

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

When you register we will send you a pack which contains fundraising inspiration and advice. Please get in touch if you have any questions about your skydive or fundraising. 

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.

Can we take part as a group?

Yes! The more the merrier. Just ask each group member to register here and ensure they've signed up with the airfield directly on your chosen date. You can also set up a JustGiving page as a group or individually.

Where can I do my skydive?

You can choose any airfield in the UK or further afield, and book directly. 

If you'd like to book a jump through our partner skydiving company Skyline, you can find a list of their locations here. For further information about their skydives and parachute jumps, take a look at Skyline's FAQs.

How can I fundraise?

Our handy pack and online fundraising hub contain all kinds of tips and advice for fundraising. There are a whole host of ideas, from cake sales to quizzes. Setting up a JustGiving page is easy and if you share it with friends and family on social media they can see your achievements.

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.
