At the start of the New Year 2016, we learned the exciting news that WYLD has been selected as an associate member of the World Dementia Council. This means that we will attend WDC meetings, participate in working groups and help in delivering work on key priority areas. The first meeting with WYLD as associate member took place on 25 February 2016 in London. Anja Leist was our representative and attended the pre-meeting reception and WDC7 meeting.

In the coming months, we hope to use members of the WDC to help us widen our network to include Young Leaders in Dementia from countries around the world.
