Alzheimer Scotland is Scotland’s leading dementia charity. We exist to ensure that nobody has to face dementia alone. There are over 90,000 people in Scotland living with a diagnosis of dementia and, by 2025, there is set to be a million people with the disease across the UK.
That’s why Alzheimer Scotland is working hard to increase awareness and support people with dementia, helping them to live independently in their own communities, close to the ones they love, for as long as possible.
We achieve this through a wide range of vital services across Scotland, including our 24-hour Freephone Helpline (0808 808 3000), Dementia Resource Centres, Dementia Research, Dementia Nurses and our network of specialist Dementia Advisors who deliver one-to-one personalised support to people with dementia and their families. Dementia Advisors also organise a range of community activities designed to improve confidence and wellbeing and keep people doing the things they love! These fun, interactive groups include Dementia Cafés, singing groups, allotment projects and sport reminiscence networks.
Alzheimer Scotland truly is a life line to thousands of families across the country. We work tirelessly to make a difference for anyone affected by dementia in Scotland.
In order to run, grow and develop our varied portfolio of support services, we absolutely rely on fundraised income, not only to fund our vital work but also to help us get people talking about dementia.
Support from The Enchanted Forest will allow us to empower people with dementia to live as well as possible, and help us achieve our goal of making sure nobody in Scotland faces dementia alone.
Fiona Lewis, Corporate Fundraiser at Alzheimer Scotland said:
“Alzheimer Scotland is very excited to be supported by the award-winning Enchanted Forest. We are sure guests will enjoy being dazzled by the woodland wonderland whilst raising funds for our vital support services.”
