BRACE is a registered charity that funds research into Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Our role is to help medical science understand the causes of dementia, find ways of diagnosing it earlier and more accurately, and develop more effective treatments. Ultimately, we want to help science beat dementia.
We raise funds through voluntary donations, sponsorship, legacies and fundraising events.
We spend that money by supporting research at universities in the West of England and South Wales. All the research we support has been peer reviewed and assessed by a committee that includes senior scientists.
