Research

Why is your organisation committed to the NDAA and the Dementia Statements?

Alzheimer’s Research UK is working to transform the lives of people with dementia and their families by tackling the condition on three fronts: funding and delivering pioneering research, working collaboratively to accelerate scientific progress and confronting misconceptions across society. The National Dementia Declaration strengthens our work by enshrining the rights of people living with dementia in law. Being a member of the Dementia Action Alliance gives us the opportunity to work with a broad range of partners to ensure that dementia research remains a political priority.
