The Alzheimer’s Society Accelerator Programme is open for applications. The programme invests in innovations to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. The Alzheimer’s Society will accept applications from designers, innovators, entrepreneurs or anyone with an idea that could help improve the lives of people affected by dementia.
