We've partnered with the sporting memories network to deliver weekly reminiscence sessions at venues across the boroughs of Waltham Forest and Redbridge. The programme aims to support older people across the UK living with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport. By sharing memories of sporting moments and tapping into a passion for sport we help people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away. Once sparked, the desire to have a go at other physical activities can return and we encourage and facilitate physical activities, inclusive sports and games that everyone can take part in, to promote physical health as well as mental health.
