This Dementia Awareness Week, 14-20 May, Alzheimer’s Society is asking everyone across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to unite against dementia.
Dementia is set to be the 21st century’s biggest killer but awareness and understanding remain low and many families are facing it alone.
That’s why, during the Week, we want everyone to come together and take action.
By uniting, we can raise awareness, offer help and understanding, improve care and urgently ﬁnd a cure.
#epilepsyweek (14-20 May)
National Epilepsy Week is our annual week to raise awareness of the condition.
Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem.
Mental health problems will affect one in four people at some point in their working lives. As the largest public sector employer in the UK, the NHS can make a significant contribution to combating discrimination against people with mental health problems.
The aim of World Asthma Day is to raise awareness, care and support for those affected by asthma.
Every ten seconds someone in the UK has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack and three people die every day. Tragically two thirds of these deaths could be prevented, whilst others still suffer with asthma so severe current treatments don’t work.
Make May Purple for stroke is our annual stroke awareness month, taking place every May. Friends, families and communities are invited to show their support for people who have been affected by stroke. This May, join thousands of people up and down the country and however you choose to celebrate Make May Purple, you’ll be helping us to conquer stroke.
May is National Walking Month and Living Streets, the national charity that works to create safe, attractive and enjoyable streets, will be encouraging people to get more walking into their day.
