Alzheimer's Research UK

Alzheimer's Society is a United Kingdom care and research charity for people with dementia and their carers. It operates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, while its sister charities Alzheimer Scotland and Alzheimer's Society of Ireland cover Scotland and the Republic of Ireland respectively.

Despite its name, the charity does not exclusively help people with Alzheimer's disease. There are many types of dementia, which is an umbrella term. Dementia types include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, Korsakoff's syndrome, Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, HIV related cognitive impairment, mild cognitive impairment, and other rarer causes of dementia. 

It is a membership organisation, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Many of the 25,000 members have personal experience of dementia, as carers, health professionals or people with dementia themselves. 

At the moment dementia is incurable and available treatments are limited. But our cutting-edge research is on the brink of life-changing breakthroughs. In the past year alone we have invested a record-breaking £21.1 million into dementia research. This is only possible because of the generosity of people like you.

This is why Trivia Battle has selected Alzheimer's Research UK as one of our primary charities we support. 10% of our profits go into these charities. Stay tuned to find out exactly how much gets donated, and how exactly the act of playing Trivia Battle directly impacts this charity.
