We are excited to bring you, in partnership with Life Changes Trust, a thrilling two-day online event celebrating how we can have an active future with dementia.

Staying active has a huge number of benefits for everyone, including people who are living with dementia and the unpaid carers of people with dementia. It can help to improve mental health and well-being, strengthen social ties, and improve cognitive function.

We will highlight how people with dementia and unpaid carers can stay active at home, as well as access outdoor activities and local sports clubs.

Hosted by Sporting Memories Ambassador Stephen Halkett, you are invited to an energising interactive online session, exploring what sport and physical activity looks like for people living with dementia and unpaid carers post-COVID.

We will hear from some brilliant projects that have continued to support their communities to be active throughout the pandemic and look at what their plans are for the future.

Who is the event for?

The event is for people living with dementia and unpaid carers, as we want to hear about activities that resonate and inspire, but also the challenges faced in getting active and accessing groups/facilities.

Your feedback will provide vital learning for us and other groups to focus and adapt our activity as well as help and support organisations adjust to a post-COVID world.
