'Leaving a gift in your Will, even just a small percentage, is really one of the simplest and best ways to help.' Sir Tony Robinson
Why your support is needed?
Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, one million of us will have dementia. Two million will have dementia by 2051. But dementia won't win!
Until the day we find a cure, we'll be here for everyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by people affected by dementia.
Everyday, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need our help. And we are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.
We have a long term plan to revolutionise the fight against dementia, by vastly increasing research, support and social movement.
Without your kindness our plan would not be possible. By including us in your Will you are helping us strive to create a better world for everyone affected by dementia.
Request your free Will guide and leave a legacy that helps support the 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia.
How gifts in Wills directly help people and services
Michael has frontotemporal dementia and attends The Limes, an Alzheimer's Society day support service in Bristol. Clients like Michael can choose from tai chi sessions, walking, gardening, drum therapy, Singing for the Brain sessions and taking part in quizzes.
This project has been supporting younger people with dementia and their families for the last 14 years, and was made possible by a legacy.
Jean from Eastbourne, just 52, has dementia, which places daily strain on her family. Fortunately, thanks to a legacy, we were able to open the Sea Haven Club in Eastbourne, a special centre for younger people with dementia.
What's more - again thanks to legacy gifts - Jean and her fellow members can enjoy group trips out in our wheelchair-adapted minibus.
