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.
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.
Stroke affects every one of us. It kills twice as many women as breast cancer and more men than prostate cancer. Stroke is now the second biggest killer in the world and the leading cause of complex adult disability in the UK. We’re bringing people together – researchers, scientists and supporters – to transform how we prevent and treat stroke and to save even more lives.
The brain is the most complex organ in our body. It controls our emotions, senses and actions. So when it breaks down, we break down. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Brain tumours have a devastating impact on people’s lives. They can strike anyone, at any age. And they strike fast. But what if we could move faster? What if we could be the generation that stopped them - right in their tracks?
You can help us rewrite the future of brain tumour research by leaving a gift in your Will, giving hope to thousands of brain tumour patients and their families. Your gift will be helping to fund life-saving research at a network of dedicated Centres of Excellence in the UK.
The Brain and Spine Foundation was set up in 1992 to develop research, education and information programmes aimed at improving the prevention, treatment and care of people affected by disorders of the brain and spine and to stimulate the greater allocation of resources across all neurological disorders.
The number of people living with dementia in the UK is set to rise to 1 million by 2025 and 2 million by 2051. In fact, someone develops dementia every three minutes. Until a cure is found we need better ways of living with this condition. After diagnosis, people with dementia and their families often find that their life changes dramatically.
Together, we can make sure everyone affected by epilepsy gets the healthcare and support they need - and the respect, fairness and understanding they deserve. Epilepsy Action is a movement of people who share this vision of a better life for everyone affected by the condition.
