What is Sporting Memories?

We caught up with Health and Wellbeing Co-ordinator Helen John to hear all about our Sporting Memories project.

Using the power of sport the team work to engage with older, socially isolated members of our community across Ospreylia and bring them together to share memories, re-connect and improve / maintain their physical and mental health.

Sporting memories can last a lifetime, and the idea of the project is to get older people together to talk about sport. It could be a game they once played in, a great match or memorable sports star from the past. In the activity of reminiscing in a sociable setting, it is hoped there will be benefits in combating dementia, isolation and loneliness.
