It makes me very proud to tell you that we’ve extended our partnership with Alzheimer’s Society into a fourth year.
While we are all facing tough challenges in the coronavirus pandemic, people living with dementia feel it more than many.
Some 850,000 people in the UK live with dementia and over 700,000 have been asked to stay at home in isolation, as they are over 70 years of age and could be at risk. That’s a sobering thought.
Now more than ever it’s important that we continue to support Alzheimer’s Society and help them tackle dementia.
Since its launch in 2017, our colleague-driven partnership with Alzheimer’s Society
has seen us raise over £200,000 of vitally needed funds to support those living with dementia and their families.
We’ve also raised awareness of dementia: over 84% of our workforce have attended dementia awareness training and our own ‘Dementia Champions’ have delivered sessions for many organisations.
This dedication to supporting Alzheimer’s Society demonstrates how connected our colleagues are to our corporate charity and how this partnership has enabled us to help not only our customers, but also their families and communities.
The Cadent family has done great things to support people living with dementia and I am looking forward to seeing more success stories over this next year.
