BRACE - dementia research

We raise funds and we support dementia research. That’s the simple description of our work.

We are seeking to understand the causes, achieve early diagnosis and find treatments.

We don’t do the research ourselves. We award grants to university-based researchers in South West England and South Wales. They might be laboratory scientists or clinicians engaged in clinical research, where patients and volunteers are also involved.

Founded 1987
