Webhelp is delighted to announce Dementia UK as their corporate charity partner for 2020

This partnership was nominated, and chosen, by employees at Webhelp. The company was overwhelmed by the sheer number of votes, which indicated a fantastic level of commitment and support for the charity at a time when an increasing number of people are being diagnosed with dementia.


Dementia UK is the only national charity caring for families through dementia specialist Admiral Nurses. When things get challenging or difficult for families, Admiral Nurses work with them, understanding their unique situation and providing strategies to help them cope.  The nurses work across a range of care settings within the community, care homes, hospitals and hospices. Some nurses also work on Dementia UK’s Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline – the only nurse-led helpline in the country which is available to anyone with any questions or concerns around dementia.

A Webhelp employee, who nominated the charity, explained that they personally regarded the Admiral Nurses as game-changers in terms of helping both the individual with dementia and their families. Allowing them to cope more effectively and to enable the person to live independently or at home for longer.

The funds raised will go towards the charity’s Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.

Their knowledge of the field is impressive, the management team are experts in medical and social care fields and the CEO, Hilda Hayo, is a practicing Admiral Nurse who specialises in young onset dementia.

The charity is keen to welcome Webhelp on board and Reshma Vishram, Corporate Partnerships Executive at Dementia UK commented:

“We are really excited to hear that we have been chosen to be the 2020 Charity of the Year for Webhelp. Your support will allow more families to access the vital support of our Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.

“Last year, we gave 60,000 families the care, advice and practical support to help them cope at the most stressful of times. We look forward to working with Webhelp to continue to provide this vital level of support at such a challenging point in people’s lives.”

As a people first company, the work of the charity is highly regarded at Webhelp, as its CEO David Turner, explains: “Dementia UK doesn’t just support the individual, it supports the family too. This clearly means something to our colleagues who selected it to be our 2020 corporate charity partner. It’s a privilege to support the practical and progressive work the organisation does.”

This exciting new partnership follows on from the success of Webhelp’s corporate charity support of Together for Short Lives, which resulted in over £31,000 being raised for the Children’s hospice charity.
