Become a Friend of Food for the Brain

By becoming a FRIEND your donation supports the charity to provide you and others with an array of educational tools to help you take control of your brain health:

COGNITION® – The personalised, interactive, educational brain upgrade web-based program that helps you dementia-proof your diet and lifestyle. As a FRIEND you have free access at any time.

MY LIBRARY – A growing library of health reports and filmed interviews with experts in mental health

Most of all, becoming a FRIEND supports the essential work of the charity, educating people on the importance of nutrition for brain health, providing free resources that help people manage their condition, and helping thousands take steps towards reducing their risk of dementia in the future through our free Cognitive Function test and Dementia Risk Index questionnaire. It helps us continue our Catering Accreditation scheme, working with caterers in schools, universities and other catering establishments to upgrade their offering to promote brain health. It also supports our ongoing research finding out how best to inspire positive change to help people reduce their dementia risk through diet and lifestyle. But we can’t do any of this without your support.

PAST WEBINARS – A growing library of past webinars with world class pioneers, plus big discounts on paid new webinars and Masterclasses

FRIEND’S FACEBOOK GROUP – Where you can ask questions, share experiences with others, find out what works

Every £1 you give helps us reach and change the lives of so many more people.

How we put your donation to work

Right now your donation is helping us to: build our much needed research database, move old CFT results across so people can track their progress over time: set up pin prick blood testing; improve COGNITION including bringing in ‘push’ text prompt to remind and motivate people to enact prevention steps; add in zoom sessions for additional support; making three Masterclasses, on Autism, Alzheimer’s prevention and optimum nutrition for the mind, available to all. We cannot do this without FRIENDS. Please donate now – ideally paying £50 a year.
