At Alzheimer’s Society, we are inspired by many things – from the resilience of people and families affected by dementia to the generosity of the public in supporting our research and our growing range of dementia support services. But nothing inspires us more than the thousands of volunteers who make our work possible. They not only account for the majority of our workforce; they bring with them a level of commitment and expertise that is successfully driving our vision of a world without dementia.
