Alzheimers Society - Office Volunteer



Details of the Charity:

Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society will be here for anyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by them. We are the UK's leading dementia charity. Every day, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need out help. And we are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice. Let's take on dementia together. Volunteer. Donate. Campaign for change. Whatever you do, unite with us against dementia.
