How celebrities support us

Carey Mulligan celebrity supporter of Alzheimer's Society charity

Alzheimer’s Society can call upon an inspiring and influential group of high-profile volunteers from the world of music, film, television, sport and the arts, all united against dementia, to support the work we do.

Taking part in fundraising events like Cupcake Day and Memory Walk, sharing their personal experience of dementia to raise awareness of a campaign, becoming a Dementia Friend and sharing messages on social media are just some of the ways our celebrity supporters help us make a difference to the lives of people affected by dementia.

Most recently we've announced David Baddiel as our new Alzheimer's Society ambassador. David is one of Britain’s most popular comedians. David’s Dad is currently living with Pick’s Disease and this was the subject of his stage show ‘My Family: Not the Sitcom’ and Channel 4 documentary ‘The Trouble with Dad’. David wants to use comedy to talk about dementia to raise awareness of what dementia is, and how it affects every person differently. He is joining forces with Alzheimer’s Society to continue this conversation and to encourage others to unite against dementia so no-one has to face the condition alone..
