Sporting Memories Café

13 November, 2020, 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

This is an online event.

Join the Sporting Memories Café for a cup of tea and a blether while learning how community groups in Scotland are using sporting archives and other resources to help people with mental health issues and conditions leading to isolation. For those living with dementia and people living with issues such as isolation, depression and loneliness, as well as their families and carers, archives can provide a lifeline. From the Highlands to the Scottish Borders, whether its football, golf, rugby or shinty, there is something for everyone and a chance to share memories. Hear about the research behind the projects from Professor Richard Haynes, University of Stirling and why they are funded by charities such as, Life Changes Trust.
