TRAINING: Sporting Memories

New Sporting Memories Network groups are being established in West Yorkshire to support older people and to help tackle dementia, depression and loneliness.

Using the history and heritage of sport, the weekly groups are a fun, friendly place for older sports fans to meet, make new friends, share memories and play some sports. Lasting no more than 90 minutes per session, Sporting Memories supply staff and volunteers with iconic images of sporting legends and sporting events to help trigger conversation and discussion.

If you want to help deliver sessions like these or just want more information on the project, visit or email

Volunteers will be provided with full training, knowledge of sporting history isn’t required, a passion to help out at a fun group that can really help make a difference is! Information on the training session is attached.
