Alzheimer’s Research UK
Unless we act now, one in three people born today will develop dementia in their lifetime. But there is hope. Because dementia is caused by physical diseases, and diseases can be cured.
At Alzheimer’s Research UK, our vision is a world where people are free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.
Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity. We are dedicated to making breakthroughs in diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure, for all types of dementia.
Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we fund and deliver pioneering research. We challenge the way people think about dementia and bring together the people and organisations who can speed up progress.
We believe that medical research can and will deliver life-changing preventions, treatments and one day, a cure for dementia. Alzheimer’s Research UK exists to make this happen. For as long as there are people and families affected by dementia, our work goes on.
The Inspire Fund is part of our work to tackle misconceptions around dementia and promote the importance of dementia research. Traditional methods of disseminating information and building knowledge do not always reach those who would benefit most.
We created the Inspire Fund to spark innovative engagement projects, supporting grassroots activity and utilising creative methods. Through the grants scheme we have supported partnerships between researchers, communities and creatives, to build understanding of what it means to be affected by dementia, and the hope that lies in research.
