A revolution is growing

Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society today and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it. Today almost one million people in the UK are living with a form of dementia, the most common one being Alzheimer’s disease. Sadly, one in three of us will be affected by dementia in some way.

Today, 50 million people are living with dementia across the world. Too often they struggle alone, feeling as though their world has been turned upside down and often facing prejudice or misunderstanding.

But no more. A revolution is growing – on the streets and in the laboratories. Scientists are gaining on dementia, pioneering breakthroughs and transforming lives.

It is time to bring dementia out of the shadows and set things straight.

As Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK are joining forces for a year-long campaign to power groundbreaking dementia research, overthrow old attitudes and lead the charge towards a cure.

Join us.



Together we are unstoppable

The Dementia Revolution is a unique opportunity to power the most ambitious dementia research endeavour the UK has ever seen – the UK Dementia Research Institute.

Each and every one of us can create a groundswell of support for our scientists and champion the voices of hundreds of thousands of families affected by this cruel condition.

Whether you run, donate or spread our message, you can make a stand with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK for this unique one-year campaign. Together we’ll be an unstoppable force that will transform lives.

Dementia is not a lost cause. It is time to set things straight. This is why we have started the Dementia Revolution.

Get inspired
