Dementia UK Training
Dementia UK Training specialises in the provision of high quality training courses for those who work with older people and people with dementia.
Uniting Carers is a national network of carers, former carers, family and friends of people affected by dementia.
As well as these four core areas, Dementia UK works in partnership with a host of organisations and networks and has set up regional centres to ensure that people everywhere can have access to the support that they need
We’ve been going since 1902 and along the way we’ve achieved a long list of firsts. Now we’re pushing well into the future – developing newer, kinder treatments, getting closer to cures.
Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour, every person. And as a collective force we’ve helped double survival rates in the last forty years. But we can’t stop there. More than 1 in 3 of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives and with our ageing population, this statistic is getting worse.
We’re fighting for a world where no one’s life is cut short by cancer. And there is real hope. Each year our scientists get closer to finding cures for cancers – whether through targeted treatment or simply detecting cancers earlier. Genome mapping and new technologies have put us on the brink of major breakthroughs. With the continued help of our supporters we will help turn these breakthroughs into treatments that could save millions of lives and accelerate our progress against this devastating disease.
To save lives; to add years; to make treatments kinder; to inform, prevent; to expel fear and to cure. The only ones fighting over 200 cancers – including the 1 that matters most to you.
