Through the project, Ospreys in the Community work closely with local sports clubs to provide a friendly welcoming club environment for individuals. They can come for a chat, a cup of tea, a chance to meet new people, and increase their physical activity by participating in some of the activities on offer.
The Sporting Memories Foundation is the World's first charity dedicated to Sports Reminiscence and Physical Activities.
"Our aim is to engage with people in their local rugby or community club. Creating a safe and familiar environment where we can encourage conversations and reminisce about Sport. The programme aims to tackle social isolation and loneliness."
The Sporting Memories project supports older people 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, such as recalling #MyFirstGame and tapping into a passion for sport the project helps people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.
Sporting Memories takes place at the following locations and times:
Loughour RFC- every Monday 10:30-12:30
Neath RFC- every Monday 13:30-15:30
Ynystawe Cricket Club- every Tuesday 10:30-12:30
