Become a valued member of PREVENT Dementia and join the fight against dementia.

What does membership involve?

We know that thousands of people in the UK want to join the PREVENT Dementia study, but like most research studies, our funding and resources are limited. At its heart PREVENT is about finding out as much as we can about the diseases and changes in the brain that lead to dementia. It is also about sharing information about brain health, learning from those with personal experience of dementia and finding out about what matters to them and keeping them abreast of the latest research in the field.

We plan hold national conferences for members, send newsletters, and organise local events to help us with delivering science and raising awareness. Members may also get together and plan their own social or fundraising events.
