What we do
Alzheimer’s Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, including 60,000 in London, with numbers set to rise to one million by 2021.
The Society’s fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms. Through our network of local services, we touch the lives of over 30,000 people every week. Across London we provide 180 services, including information and advice, support groups and dementia advisors. From Alzheimer’s Café’s and innovative ‘Singing for the Brain‘ sessions to memory-book projects and group outings, our services provide both practical support and an essential point of human contact.
Through campaigning and lobbying we strive to influence government policies and raise awareness of the challenges faced by people with dementia and the people who care for them. And through our research programme we work to improve the knowledge we have about dementia and its treatment – and pursuing the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
