Michelle Mitchell‚ Charity Director for Age Concern and Help the Aged‚ said:

"The fact that dementia research remains so disproportionately underfunded will be deeply concerning to older people‚ their families and anyone who has experienced this cruel disease.

"The financial burden of this disease is already very high and this will increase further as the population ages unless we find a cure or learn how to prevent dementia.

"Dementia is not going to go away and it is therefore of paramount importance to both sufferers now and society as a whole‚ that we invest in research.

"This is why Age Concern and Help the Aged are a major funder of dementia research and we strongly support calls for more funding for this vital work."
