Supporting Dementia UK at work

Dementia is now the leading cause of death in the UK, and it is estimated that the number of people living here with the condition will rise to over 1 million by 2021. You can make a difference by getting your company involved to raise vital awareness and funds to support families facing dementia.

Our charity partner 2017-2019, Dementia UK, was selected through a staff vote and – as one of the biggest health issues of our time – is a cause that resonates strongly with our colleagues and customers. In fact, this has been our most successful charity partnership to date.

–  Martyn Cheatle, Chief Executive Officer of Central England Co-operative.

Dementia UK’s experienced and passionate team has worked with companies of different sizes and sectors. We would work with you initially to discuss and agree objectives for the partnership, and then help you to engage your audiences. We’ll also provide you with:

  • The opportunity to fund Dementia UK Admiral Nurse services in specific locations (great for impact reporting and PR)
  • An experienced account management team to support and drive the partnership
  • A bespoke calendar of fundraising activities like our Time For A Cuppa campaign, tailored to meet your business objectives, culture and corporate social responsibility needs
  • Places in the UK’s biggest challenge events , like Ride London, the Great North/South Runs or the SimplyHealth Great Manchester Run
  • Opportunities to increase local and national PR and heighten brand awareness
  • Direct support for staff and customers affected by dementia
