Alzheimer Europe (AE) defines its mission as "changing perceptions, practice and policy in order to improve the access of people with dementia and their carers to treatment options and care services". In addition, the organisation has defined its guiding philosophy as "promoting the autonomy and self-determination of people with dementia and their carers throughout the course of the disease".
To achieve its mission and accomplish its vision, Alzheimer Europe has developed four objectives in its strategic plan (2011-2015) which was developed within the framework of its 2010 Operating Grant:
1. Making dementia a European priority through representing the interests of people with dementia, partnering with European institutions and jointly developing policy;
2. supporting policy with facts by improving the information exchange between AE, its members and other stakeholders, by setting up a European Dementia Observatory and by comparing national systems and identifying best practices;
3. basing our actions on ethical principles by understanding ethical principles and approaches, promoting a rights-based approach to dementia and finding common ground and building consensus on ethical issues;
4. building a stronger organisation by supporting and involving national associations, involving people with dementia and their carers, establishing AE conferences as unique networking opportunities, developing strategic partnerships, providing a sound governance structure and diversifying the organisation`s funding.
On the basis of these strategic objectives, Alzheimer Europe develops annual work plans outlining the priority areas and projects of the organisation.

The mission of the SCPE network is to learn more about the cerebral palsies from surveillance of trends in prevalence rates, severity, associated impairments and secondary disabilities.
By using population-based surveys and registers across Europe the SCPE network aims to:
• promote harmonization and quality of definition and description of the cerebral palsies
• develop collaborative epidemiological and clinical research projects about the cerebral palsies, attracting young researchers to the field, in partnership with individuals with cerebral palsies and their carers
• disseminate knowledge about the cerebral palsies for individuals with cerebral palsies, health care professionals and key stakeholders, including via academic publications
• develop best practice in monitoring trends in the cerebral palsies
• raise standards of care equitably for all people with cerebral palsies through the life span and thus improve outcomes and quality of life for individuals with cerebral palsies and their carers
