‘It was only when I really put my foot down, after seven months of waiting for a social services assessment and Mum ending up in hospital, that Mum’s care finally began to move forward – and still our savings are disappearing fast.’
- Enomwoyi, daughter and carer of Pearl, who has dementia
Why campaign with us?
We want to create a world where every person affected by dementia gets the support and care they deserve, where dementia research is well-funded, and where people living with dementia don’t face unnecessary barriers to living fulfilling lives.
Our campaigns are directly rooted in the experiences of people affected by dementia. We work to amplify their voices. This gives our campaigns the expertise and authority to engage policy and decision makers and, crucially, change things for the better.
What are we campaigning for?

We can’t do this alone
The more people who join our campaigns, the more likely it is that the Government will listen. Whether you have dementia yourself, you have a personal connection to dementia, or you want to stand with those who do, we need your help.

What can I do to help?
