Let’s make breakthroughs possible

UK Dementia Research Institute Appeal 2019

We'll find life-changing breakthroughs together


Your gift today could help us understand the link between hearing loss and dementia

Hearing loss is a natural part of life and could be one of the most significant risk factors of all when it comes to dementia…

Let me tell you more about my work and how you can help researchers like me understand the connections between everyday life and dementia risk. Because the sooner we know how specific lifestyle choices are linked to dementia, and the changes people can make, the sooner we can find a way to stop one in three cases of dementia before it even starts.

By supporting today’s appeal, you could fund prevention and treatment studies that would change lives for generations to come.
