Date published: 02/03/2017

The Sporting Memories Network supports older people across the UK living with dementia, depression and Front page of newsletterloneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport.

By sharing memories and tapping into a passion for sport, Sporting Memories groups bring generations together through shared passions and help unlock people’s stories and memories of sporting events and activities.

Groups have been set up across England and Scotland, and the Sporting Memories Network is now working with potential partners including Glamorgan Cricket Club to help establish groups in Welsh communities. Each Sporting Memories group is different, but each is led by its members, through the support of materials, resources and ideas.
