Lottery and Super Draw - How your money helps people affected by dementia

Thanks to your donations we can be there for even more people affected by dementia. Too many people face dementia alone, but your donations are helping to fund Dementia Advisors who are there for people affected by dementia. They help people with dementia take back control of their lives and remain independent for longer.
