Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be a devastating and frightening time both for the person with dementia and for their families and friends. Every penny you raise for us will help us make sure nobody faces dementia alone.
We’re here when people need someone to listen to them and give emotional support, or when they need practical information and advice. You can pick up the phone to our 24 hour Freephone Dementia Helpline anytime or meet with our Dementia Advisors.
Our clubs, cafes and groups give people a chance to meet others in similar circumstances, make new friends and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of activities and socialising.
We help fund research into dementia prevention, giving hope to future generations.
90,000 people in Scotland are living with dementia and as that number continues to rise, there has never been a more vital time to support the work of Alzheimer Scotland. We can’t make a difference to people living with dementia without fundraisers like you.
We’ll support you
Whether this is your first 10k or you’re a seasoned marathon runner, our dedicated events team is here to help.
Sign up to #TeamAlzScot and we’ll provide:
purple Alzheimer Scotland running top or vest
comprehensive fundraising pack with training hints
friendly team on the end of the phone to help with your fundraising
warm welcome at the finish line with some chocolate, a cuppa and a free massage
A day like no other
“The support before and during the race was incredible. Everyone wearing the Alzheimer Scotland logo top on the day either high-fived me, ran next to me, shouted words of encouragement or even hugged me. We were like a family and I was completely overwhelmed. The feeling that I had that day was like no other. We all understood each other.” Michelle McKee, EMF Marathon 2015
