Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK's leading dementia research charity, dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, uniting the big thinkers in the field and funding the innovative science that will deliver a cure.

With dementia costing the UK economy £25bn each year, Alzheimer’s Research UK is asking the financial industry to be at the forefront of our search for life-changing treatments.

By uniting to support our Strength in Numbers campaign, you’ll be helping to bring forward the diagnosis and detection of the diseases that cause dementia 10-15 years earlier than we can today. This will give us the best chance of stopping diseases like Alzheimer’s before symptoms start to get in the way of life, keeping people connected to their world, their families and themselves for longer.
