Most of us are touched by dementia – a grandparent, parent, partner, friend, colleague. Your support will enable the spread of our ground-breaking initiatives to enhance life for people with dementia and their carers. Through fundraising and sponsorship you will make a real difference. Fundraising for the life-transforming intergenerational reach of Arts 4 Dementia offers challenges, great and small.

Your monthly gift for £10 for a year will support an artist leading a workshop to inspire and re-energise people in the early stages of dementia and their carers. The more you raise will make a real difference and help to transform their lives:
- 800,000 people living with dementia in England and Wales.
- Two-thirds live at home, struggling with memory loss, increasingly isolated through stigma, desperate to retain their mental faculties.
- As the creative part of their brain may remain undamaged for years, artistic stimulation will help restore sense of self, combat stigma and bring life-enhancing opportunity
