Alzheimer’s Society becomes an affiliate of Our Future Health
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
Around 900,000 people live with dementia in the UK, with over half of these cases caused by Alzheimer’s disease. It’s estimated that, within the next three years, over 1 million people will live with dementia in the UK.
Alzheimer’s Society provide hope: they join forces with people affected by dementia, leading scientists and policy makers, amplifying voices to push for cutting edge breakthroughs and societal change that’ll improve the lives of people affected by dementia, now and in the future.
Our Future Health is joining with many of the UK’s leading health research charities who are providing valuable support and expertise to help develop Our Future Health. They will make a big impact in allowing us to ultimately change the way we prevent, detect and treat diseases.
Andrew Roddam, CEO of Our Future Health, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Alzheimer’s Society as an affiliate charity of Our Future Health. With their support, we hope to enhance research into dementia and make discoveries that benefit everyone it affects.”
Dr Richard Oakley, Associate Director of Research at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Alzheimer’s Society are excited to be joining Our Future Health as an affiliate member to transform the prevention, detection and treatment of diseases such as those which lead to dementia. With the number of people living with dementia in the UK set to reach 1 million by 2025, initiatives like Our Future Health will be game changing in the future. For over 30 years, Alzheimer’s Society have passionately funded innovative, transformative research into prevention, treatment and care for people affected by dementia. Research will beat dementia. Partnering with ambitious initiatives like Our Future Health which are supported by millions of volunteers, holds the key to a better future for people affected by dementia now and in the future.”
