Alzheimer Scotland’s Memory Walks are family friendly walks which bring thousands of people together across the country.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our 2019 walks! We'll be releasing information about our 2020 walks in the Spring.
What is a Memory Walk?
A Memory Walk is an opportunity to come together with friends and family to show your support for people living with dementia. Our Memory Walks take place across the country and anyone can take part.
Each person walking will have a similar reason to do so; they’re walking for someone they care about. This could be a person currently living with dementia, a carer or in memory of someone. Memory Walks across Scotland have so far raised over £1 million since they began, helping to provide crucial support across the country for people with dementia, their families and carers.
Dementia is the biggest health and social care challenge faced by Scotland today. There are around 90,000 people living with dementia in Scotland and by the year 2020 there will be more than 1 million people living with dementia in the UK. Our aim is to put dementia firmly at the heart of our communities and to make sure that nobody faces the illness alone.
