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.

Butterfly Conservation

Butterflies and moths may be tiny but to save them you have to think big.
Colonies of butterflies surviving in small isolated pockets of land are vulnerable. Research has shown that they can be encouraged to spread their wings and expand but only if they don't have to fly too far.
In response to this new way of understanding butterfly populations and movement, our work to protect them and their habitat takes a landscape-scale approach.
Conservation on a landscape-scale means creating chains of butterfly habitat across large areas of countryside. Improving and connecting land for wildlife through the coordinated conservation management of numerous sites for a range of species across a large natural area. 
In the last decade, Butterfly Conservation and our partners have embarked on some of the biggest butterfly projects to date.
Butterfly Conservation projects focus on some of our most threatened butterflies and moths, they are often identified as priorities for conserving biodiversity by governments. 
The landscape-scale approach is used in many projects across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, further details on these projects can be found on the relevant countries pages.
