Who We Are
Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity. We fund innovative research with the power to transform lives, campaign for government action, and help people to understand dementia and the progress we’re making with research.
Our people are vital to our mission. Our pioneering spirit is reflected in the energy and drive of our staff – all of whom play a key role in helping realise our vision of a world where people are free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.
Our vision is that one day, we’ll live in a world where dementia does not exist. Research is already providing hope to people affected by once-incurable diseases, like HIV/AIDS and cancer.
Our mission is to bring about the first life-changing dementia treatment by 2025.
With your support, we’re working across four key areas of action.
Through these important strands of work, we’re bringing about breakthroughs that will change lives.
The diseases that cause dementia are no different –they are physical diseases that can be overcome. We know it won’t happen overnight. But with the backing of our passionate supporters, scientists and staff, we are working tirelessly until that day comes.
