We are Scotland's national dementia charity. More than ever, we need to support people living with dementia.


Alzheimer Scotland campaign for the rights of people with dementia and their families and provide an extensive range of innovative and personalised support services.

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 (0808 808 3000) Dementia Helpline anytime or meet with our Dementia Advisors. We help fund research into dementia prevention, giving hope to future generations.

Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be a devastating and frightening time both for the person with dementia and for their families and friends. 

We can’t make a difference to people living with dementia without fundraisers like you. Every penny you raise will help us make sure nobody faces dementia alone. 




Whether this is your first 10k or you’re a seasoned marathon runner, our dedicated events team are here to help.

Sign up to #TeamAlzScot and we’ll provide:  

⭐ Purple Alzheimer Scotland breathable running vest/t-shirt

⭐ Comprehensive fundraising pack with training hints 

⭐ Friendly team on the end of the phone to help with your fundraising and keep you informed on how your donations are making an impact

⭐ Warm welcome at the finish line to celebrate your achievements with us and fellow supporters. Enjoy a cuppa and a well earned massage on us! 

⭐ Cheer points packed with purple cheer squads over the full weekend

“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
