Frequently Asked Questions
What does Alzheimer’s Research UK do?
We are the UK’s leading dementia research charity. Our singular focus on research means that we can channel our expertise and energy with maximum benefit, to make the greatest difference to people affected by dementia and their families. Through our advocacy and campaigning work we’re also bringing together governments, funders, industry and people affected by dementia to improve the environment for research and ensure the breakthroughs from research reach people with dementia more quickly. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in cutting-edge research to protect our children and grandchildren from the heartbreak of dementia. We believe that medical research can and will deliver life-changing preventions, treatments and one day, a cure for dementia. Alzheimer’s Research UK exists to make this happen and with your support, we’ll make life-changing breakthroughs possible.
