Charity details

Dementia Uk


Dementia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive conditions that affect the brain. There are over 200 subtypes of dementia, but the five most common are: Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia and mixed dementia.

The brain is made up of nerve cells (neurones) that communicate with each other by sending messages. Dementia damages the nerve cells in the brain so messages can’t be sent from and to the brain effectively, which prevents the body from functioning normally.

Regardless of which type of dementia is diagnosed and what part of the brain is affected, each person will experience dementia in their own unique way.

Dementia can affect a person at any age but it is more commonly diagnosed in people over the age of 65 years. A person developing dementia before age 65 is said to have young onset dementia.

There are over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and this is set to rise to over one million by 2021.

The Friends Of The Five Parishes

The United Parish of Broxted with Chickney, Tilty, Great Easton and Little Easton

Our four working churches are of different sizes and styles and serve the communities of Broxted and Chickney, Duton Hill, Tilty, Great Easton and Little Easton.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters they are kept in good structural and decorative condition with well maintained churchyards. The church doors are kept unlocked to encourage locals, visitors and private worship. They are popular with tourists and have been mentioned in several books on English churches and in guides to the area.

The Five Parishes is an inspirational place to live, work and worship. The tranquility of its rural location makes it an ideal place to raise a family. Living here, you are at the heart of village life, yet close to the wider facilities of local market towns. Good communications give easy access to larger towns and cities for anything not available locally.

Stansted Airport Watch

Campaigning to ensure that Stansted Airport’s authorised operations remain below harmful limits

With overwhelming backing from the local community and through legal and planning challenges, research and analysis, lobbying and media support we prevented the go-ahead for a second runway. The next challenge as Stansted Airport Watch is to ensure that existing operations at the airport remain below harmful limits. Take action by supporting SSE to help us keep the airport in check.
