Latest News from Everycare
At 20:00 BST on Thursday, households across the UK stood on their doorsteps and balconies and applauded the efforts of the NHS and care workers in treating those affected by Covid-19.
The initiative was devised by Annemarie Plas, from Brixton, south-west London, who was inspired by same event happening in her home country of the Netherlands, and in many other countries.
Annemarie posted details of the event on her social media channels, and enthusiasm for taking part quickly spread across the UK.
“I hope that it creates a positive boost for those on the frontline,” she said.
“But also [when] you hear your neighbours applauding you know that we are together in this, because we are currently all in our houses.”

Alzheimer’s Research UK and Dementia UK are calling on the government to prioritise dementia research, in the wake of a new report revealing the number of people with the condition in the UK and across Europe will double by 2050.
According to the report, the number of people with dementia in the UK is set to rise to nearly two million by 2050, while in Europe the number is expected to rise to over 16 million.
Following the Conservatives’ 2019 election pledge to double dementia research funding, Alzheimer’s Research UK launched its Delivering the Dementia Moonshot report, outlining six priority areas for the UK government’s research funding.
These priorities are:
• To find ways to detect the diseases that cause dementia 10-15 years earlier and to broaden the search for new treatments.
• Intervene with those most at risk of developing dementia.
• Make the UK the best place to conduct clinical dementia research.
• Further our understanding of dementia risk reduction and prevention and dementia in the context of multimorbidities.
• Find ways to more effectively validate novel targets in early drug development to maximise chances of successful clinical trials
• Expand research infrastructure to maintain the UK’s position as a world leader in dementia research.
