INTERDEM is a European network established in 1999, with DSDC Wales as a founder member.

It aims:

  1. To develop pan-European research on Early, Timely and Quality Psychosocial Interventions in Dementia.
  2. To actively disseminate this and enhance practice, policy and the quality of life of people with dementia and their supporters, across Europe.
  3. To place people with dementia and their supporters at the centre of European research and practice, by actively involving them in developing these activities.


It holds regular meetings and develops project collaborations. Bob Woods is a current Board member.
