Memory Walk

Take your first step towards a world without dementia

Memory Walk is back this September, the count down has started.  Memory Walk sees thousands of people raising money for a world without dementia across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

People of all ages and abilities join in, from grandparents to grandchildren, and even furry four-legged friends. We all walk together to celebrate loved ones affected by dementia, and raise money to reclaim the future

This year we have 31 Memory Walks taking place all over England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  Click here to register at a walk near you, or alternatively you may prefer to volunteer at Memory Walk this year instead.  We are on the lookout for inspirational people to join our remarkable team of 2016. The support of our volunteers enables us to put on the best events possible to raise money for a world without dementia.Click here  to register as a volunteer at your nearest Walk.
