About the role
Over the past four decades, Alzheimer’s Society has united a dynamic group of committed and passionate star supporters in the fight against dementia. We can count on actors, comedians, social media influencers, TV presenters, sports stars – all volunteering their time and lending us their name - to help us in our mission to create a world without dementia.
Since our story began in 1979, we have reached hundreds of thousands of people with our services, changed the conversation on dementia, invested millions in research and campaigned hard for people affected by dementia to have the support they deserve.
Our high profile supporters play a key role in the dementia movement and continue to be instrumental in changing public perceptions of the condition, telling our story, making sure dementia remains at the top of the agenda and raising vital funds to bring ever closer the day we find a cure.
By creating bold and innovative opportunities with our famous friends in the media and on social media, you will engage more people than ever before in the movement for change and join with Alzheimer’s Society to beat dementia.
