A diagnosis of Dementia can have far-reaching effects for both sufferers and their families. This is something that our families have been recently affected by, so it means a lot to us to be helping to raise money to fund research that creates scientific progress and real hope for the future.

BRACE is funding clinical research in the South West to improve our understanding of Dementia; from identifying the causes and mechanisms of the disease to developing diagnostic tests and treatment options. The challenge we face is that dementia research remains troublingly underfunded; for every £10 spent on dementia care and support, just 8 pence is spent on the research to defeat it. Every donation to BRACE gives hope for earlier diagnosis, more effective treatments and, one day, a cure.
