Alzheimers Society is the UKs leading care and research charity for people with dementia and those who care for them.
There are 700,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to one million by 2025.
Alzheimers Society is a membership organisation, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The Societys fight for a better world for people with all types of dementia takes a wide range of forms.
Through our branches, we touch the lives of over 30,000 people every week, providing practical services and support for people with dementia and their carers.
Every year, more than a million people make use of the information we provide.
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.
