Dementia UK has been selected as the charity of the year by IPRS Group for 2024, with colleagues from various sectors within the group to dedicate their efforts to fundraising throughout the upcoming year.

Every year, we ask our colleagues which charity they would like us to represent which always presents us with a very difficult decision.

Dementia UK is a charity that provides Admiral Nurses for families affected by dementia. Their vision is to provide specialist and compassionate dementia support for all families that need it.

Dementia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive conditions that affect the brain. There are over 200 subtypes of dementia with the most common being Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and mixed dementia.

Each type of dementia stops a person’s brain cells (neurones) working properly in specific areas, affecting their ability to remember, think and speak.

Dementia can affect a person at any age but it’s more common in people over the age of 65.

As IPRS Group continues to grow, so does the number of nominations we receive for our charity of the year with it naturally being very hard to choose which charity to support. Of the charities suggested, Dementia UK comfortably received the most votes, and we are proud the be supporting them this year.

IPRS Group CEO, Martyn Jackson said, “Caring for the health of our community extends beyond our services, it’s about making a tangible difference in people’s lives. We are proud to announce Dementia UK as our chosen charity of the year for 2024. They are an excellent charity whose work is extremely important in support those effected. We’re all looking forward to supporting them for the next year.”

Throughout the year colleagues from across the group will partake in a range of different fundraising events ensuring everyone is able to contribute to our efforts.

Colleagues are already taking part in the March Dog Walking Challenge and over Easter colleagues will be tasked with creating a celebrity Easter egg – keep an eye out for the best efforts on our social media pages!
