The World Dementia Council was established by the G8 at the London summit and its role is to challenge and support the international decision makers to keep up momentum on dementia and to bring together international stakeholders to galvanize and amplify efforts. It is an international charity based in London with an Executive Team supported by a council of 24 senior leaders drawn from research, academia, industry and civil society. Alongside council members a number of organizations and governments are associate members of the council. As an organization committed to giving voice to people living with dementia the council includes people living with and affected by dementia. Through international advocacy, international leadership and building global networks the WDC helps keep dementia on the international agenda.
