Admiral Nurses provide the specialist dementia support that families need when things get challenging or difficult.
Admiral Nurses work alongside people with dementia, and their families: giving them one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline–it helps families to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
Most Admiral Nurses work in the community for the NHS, and others work in care homes, hospitals and hospices. Admiral Nurses work with people and families affected by all types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies.

Most Mayors choose charities with which they have some personal connection, but that should not stop other worthy causes from asking to be considered. All donations, no matter how large or how small are very gratefully recieved.
The best way of doing this is by writing to the Mayor's office before Christmas so that your letter can be given to the Mayor Elect as soon as their identity is known.
