A BETTER WORLD FOR THOSE LIVING WITH DEMENTIA

WHAT WE DO

We are millennials from clinical, academic, care, advocacy and commercial backgrounds who have united to improve the lives of people with dementia across the globe.

We support the work of the World Dementia Council as an associate member, contributing one young leader to each of their five Global Teams. Find out more here.

PARTNERSHIPS WITH DEMENTIA ORGANISATIONS

We work in partnership with existing dementia organisations to contribute novel perspectives and broaden the global reach of their projects.

DELIVER COMMISSIONED PROJECTS

We deliver commissioned projects that draw on our unique network of global connections and communication channels.
