The Lewy Body Society
Who we are
The Lewy Body Society is the only charity in the UK exclusively concerned with Lewy body dementia, the second most common type of age-related dementia.
Our objectives are to fund research into Lewy body dementia and educate the public, the medical professions and those in decision-making positions about the disease. We have awarded over £1,4 million in grants towards research studies, funded entirely through voluntary donations. Through these studies, researchers have made significant strides forward in identifying the causes of LBD and ways in which the disease can be more effectively identified and treated.
We also produce information materials to help those affected by the disease and support the Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline so that patients and carers can get expert advice and support.
