Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure for dementia and supports those who are living with it.
Donations go towards funding research into dementia, with the aim of improving care, finding the cause and working towards its prevention. The charity also runs many campaigns, with the goal of keeping dementia at the top of the political agenda and striving for positive changes.
Alzheimer’s Society also provides local support services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. These services include dementia cafés, ‘Singing for the Brain’ sessions, dementia advisers, support workers and side-by-side volunteers who help those people suffering from the condition, as well as their families, friends and carers.
The charity believes that too many people face dementia alone, and many people find it difficult to figure out who to turn if they’re looking for information and support. The solution is to provide a wide range of support services to ensure that nobody has to face it alone.
One of the charity’s most significant goals is that by 2022, all people who are newly diagnosed with dementia will have an offer of support and all those who have the condition will be able to manage it and live better overall.
There has not been a new drug for dementia introduced in the past 15 years. The drugs that exist cannot slow dementia down or stop it from getting worse, and there is currently no definite way to prevent dementia or cure it. Alzheimer’s Society is conducting research to study diseases of the brain with the goal of beating Alzheimer’s and finding a cure.
With continued support and charitable donations, Alzheimer’s Society hopes to roll out services such as ‘Dementia Connect’, which will hopefully transform the support that people living with dementia receive. This service combines face-to-face support with telephone and online advice, all provided by specially trained dementia advisers.
If you select Alzheimer’s Society Wales as your chosen charity, then Collect my Clothes will donate £250 for each ton of items collected. These funds can go towards supporting the activities of the society and helping to help those people who are suffering with Alzheimers.

I had never heard of this company until Google I was very impressed with their background and company ethics. I contacted them to collect clothes had response within the hour came this morning driver very polite and helpful please if you want to recycle use them.
This is my first time using this organisation and I was satisfied with their service. This was suitable for me as I am working and would not be able to drop clothes at shops, so having someone picking up the clothes was convenient. Thank you for this free service and would like to donate again.
I received a reply from Daryl on the day I emailed and a collection date the next day! Collection was prompt! Daryl answered any questions I asked by email within the hour. Highly recommend using this company!
Great service, very easy to arrange collection. Collection team were polite and professional and respectful of my property. Highly recommended.

I Have used this service on a couple of occasions and have found from booking the collection to pick up on the date arranged to be outstanding! The staff in the office and drivers are professional and extremely helpful. I could choose from a number of charity’s to support I would highly recommend this company and will most definitely use again throughout the year!
I had a lot of clothes that needed collecting, collect my clothes were very efficient, polite and courteous. The collection was booked for the following day and was done completely contact free. I am pleased the clothes will get reused and contribute to raising funds for charity. Win win! Would highly recommend, thank you!
Pickup was arranged very quickly and I could select the charity I wanted my donation to go to. The driver rang prior to picking up to let me know when he'd be here. Very professional. Being disabled I cant travel out so this was a great option to allow me to donate my clothes etc.
