Your support could help people like Brian and his wife Kim

Since Kim was diagnosed with young-onset dementia two years ago, Brian's world has become centred around caring for her. At first, he had never felt so alone and didn't know who to turn to for help or advice. There simply isn't enough support available from the government.

But after attending a CrISP (Carer Information and Support Programme) course, Brian came away with vital information and support so he can provide Kim with the best care.

Help us fund more carers to attend our CrISP courses. No one should have to face dementia alone.

We're here so that people affected by dementia are always supported

Lali is an Alzheimer's Society CrISP Facilitator and Dementia Adviser, who is there for people like Brian, offering knowledge and understanding.

Our CrISP courses are packed with advice about what to expect, ways to care and how to navigate the social care system, but due to a lack of funding, we have lengthy waiting lists. This is where you can help.

It's thanks to the wonderful support from people like you that our experts can be there, to ensure carers are not struggling alone.

People living with dementia need your help.
