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.
The British Home is a charity that has cared for severely disabled residents for 150 years. We could only have continued our work for so long because of the generosity of our many donors and supporters, especially those who have remembered us with a gift in their will. Our residents have modern spacious single rooms and are cared for as unique adults, each with their individual needs.
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.
For over 80 years, Caritas Care has been finding families for children, helping adopters and foster carers on their journey to becoming parents and supporting communities so that people from all walks of life can reach their full potential. We have a diverse range of services and projects across the north west of England that are dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and people in our communities.
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.
Demelza Hospice Care for Children helps children who may not live a long life, to live a full life. We provide specialist care to hundreds of babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and support to their families in East Sussex, Kent and South East London. Leaving Demelza a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us.
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.
