Vision

This year 100,000 people will develop dementia. Together, Alzheimer's Society, Alzheimer Scotland and Tesco will help make sure they don't face it alone.

What we are doing  

Many people are worried about their memory, but don’t know what to do about it. Others know they have dementia, but have no support.
By raising £5 million, Tesco will help Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland build a better future for people with dementia.

Our targets

  • For every day of our partnership, we want to help 300 people live better with dementia.
  • We aim to give 100,000 people easy-to-access support and information through the Dementia Community Roadshow.
  • We aim to help 10,000 isolated families get specialist care and advice through our new Dementia Support services.
  • We will also fund two vital dementia research scientists who will conduct groundbreaking research.

How your donation helps

The number of people with dementia is increasing each year but most do not get the support or advice that they need. Our Charity of the Year film shows how your donations will be spent helping support people to live their lives to the full.
