We are the UK’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to making life-changing breakthroughs in diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in research to make these breakthroughs possible.
Here at Alzheimer's Society we are always working hard to improve the lives of people living with dementia, to raise awareness, and to continue to fund life changing research on all aspects of dementia.
One third of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research is funded by gifts in Wills. Without this funding, much of the research and development of new therapies being undertaken across the country would not be possible.
Parkinson’s is a neurological disorder affecting over 145,000 people in the UK alone. It is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, yet symptoms are still treated with the same group of drugs we have had for over 50 years. There is currently no approved treatment which can even slow down, let alone reverse or cure the condition.
We know that living with dementia can be a hard and lonely experience. Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support through our Admiral Nurse service, working together with families to provide the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia every day.
The Trust was set up in 1994 to listen, support and respond to the needs of people living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. As a charity we have grown through our members support, to be able to produce a wide variety of FREE resources.
Diabetes is a complex condition that can cause severe complications, including sight loss, kidney failure and nerve damage leading to amputation. IDDT supports long-term research that aims to minimise the risk of these complications.
Dimbleby Cancer Care helps make life better for people facing cancer, providing practical and psychological support to patients, their families and carers, primarily through our support centres at Guy’s Cancer Centre and Queen Mary’s, Sidcup. Our focus is the support of people living with cancer, addressing the impact that a cancer diagnosis can have on the individual and those closest to them throughout treatment and beyond.
Mercy Ships deploys hospital ships to some of the poorest countries in the world, delivering vital, free healthcare to people in desperate need. Two out of three people on the planet do not have access to surgery when they need it. Conditions requiring surgical treatment kill more people in low-income countries than HIV/Aids, TB and malaria combined.
Leaving a gift in your will to The Royal Marsden is one of the most personal gifts you can make. It means your legacy can live on as you help our scientists and clinicians to search for cures and strive to build a future beyond cancer for everyone.
