The Council of Europe is the continent's leading human rights organisation. It includes 46 member states, 27 of which are members of the European Union. Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe.

The Council of Europe employs 2.200 people, and maintains external and liaison offices to other international organisations. The European Youth Centres in Strasbourg and Budapest offer training for young people in democracy and human rights issues.

Alzheimer Europe is on the list of INGOs entitled to lodge complaints under the collective complaints procedure of the European Social Charter (approved by the Governmental Committee at its 144nd meeting). This registration has been renewed and is valid for the period from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2026.

Owen Miller represents Alzheimer Europe in the Council of Europe.
