The Government remains strongly committed to supporting research into dementia and dementia care and the United Kingdom research community is playing a significant role in the global effort to find a cure or a major disease-modifying treatment by 2025.

We are now reaching the end of our current dementia strategy ‘the Challenge on Dementia 2020’. The Department has begun work with a range of stakeholders, including from the research community, to develop a new dementia strategy for England for the period 2020 to 2025. We expect to publish this early next year.

Research is one of the themes of the current dementia strategy. It will remain central to the post-2020 vision for dementia.
