Not sure who to donate to?
You can still donate to Dementia Jersey - Accuro Triathlon and help with this event's fundraising efforts by supporting a great cause.
JAA was formed in 2010 to support everyone in the Island affected by Dementia and therefore 2020 is our 10th Anniversary. Since 2012 we have experienced a dramatic 235% increase in demand for our services. Jersey now has over 1500 people diagnosed with some form of dementia and many more that we don't know about.
This year we have launched our Dementia Friends awareness sessions which seek to help people understand just a few key facts about dementia and to date are delighted to have welcomed over 350 people to the 45 minute sessions. Dementia can affect all ages and therefore a number of companies have seen the benefit of learning a little more in order to better help their customers and their staff, who may have the pressures of caring for family members or be having difficulties themselves.
