Book your exhilarating freefall from 10,000 feet and support families across the UK facing dementia. We work with Skyline to make your skydive as easy and as thrilling as possible, with a choice of various airfields across the country.

All you’ll need to do is choose your date and location, secure your place by paying the £70 registration fee to Skyline, fundraise for our Admiral Nurses… and jump! Already booked and paid for your Skydive and want to support families facing dementia? Just let us know and we will be happy to support you! 

For this event we ask for a minimum fundraising target of £395, however, some skydiving centres will set a slightly higher fundraising target. 

Jump out of a plane and help raise vital funds so our dementia specialist Admiral Nurses can provide life-changing support to families facing dementia. If you have any questions, please get in touch. 

When joining #TeamDementiaUK you’ll receive: 

  • a dedicated member of our team to support you with your fundraising
  • a fundraising guide, as well as fundraising advice, hints and tips in the build up to the big jump
  • a branded Dementia UK t-shirt for your jump
  • a range of Dementia UK fundraising materials (collection buckets, posters, balloons etc.) to make any fundraising events you hold look amazing

Supporter Sarah tells us about her daughter’s Skydive for Dementia UK:

They were so worried about Jess that they asked her on the plane if she defo wanted to do it. She said, ‘I have to, it’s for Dementia!’ Could not be prouder!
