How will my one off donation help?
£50could pay for 84 Dementia Guides. There is no dementia pathway once a diagnosis has been given. That’s why the Guide is such a lifeline. Packed with advice on how to live as well as possible with dementia, and how their families, friends and carers can plan for the future.
£100could bring 100 people living with dementia together with their local services through our online Dementia Directory. The Directory is incredibly easy to use - simply enter a postcode and find the right support in the area. The services are Alzheimer’s Society’s and any others that are available that can help.
£150could support one of our Research Network Volunteers for 3 months. These volunteers are dementia experts by experience. After training, they read every research application that comes to Alzheimer’s Society for funding to ensure that our research stays relevant, impactful and life changing for people affected by dementia. We are sector leaders in involving people linked to our cause in this way.
88 pence in every £1 of total expenditure was spent on direct costs towards improving the lives of people with dementia.
The remaining 12 pence in every £1 was spent to support our frontline activity including IT and premises.
Why I support Alzheimer's Society
When dementia took my mum and dad, I made a pledge to help create a dementia-free future for my grandchildren. That’s why I’m asking you to make a gift. No matter what size, it has the potential to assist in finding a cure for dementia. What a truly wonderful thought that is.- Sir Tony Robinson
