Help raise as much dementia awareness as possible.

We need your help to spread the word and turn Jersey purple so islanders know who we are, that we are here to support, and so we can also help make the island more dementia friendly.

Dementia is becoming a growing issue with 50 million affected worldwide, 1600 of which are living with the disease in our little island of Jersey. This number is expected to double in the next 20yrs!

Did you also know, we are the only charity available in Jersey to support those living with and affected by dementia, and that the need for our services has grown by 235% since 2012?

Showing just how important is it for our charity to grow and continue supporting the island. 

So, how can you help?
