Alzheimer Scotland

Latest news

A new season.....

The new football season has kicked off, with its regular diet of new signings, new managers, new strips (times three, in most cases), and this year the added concept of 'newco's to get our head around. And there have been plenty of new developments at Football Memories too.

Thanks to the fantastic support of the players of People's Postcode Lottery, their funding has allowed Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish Football Museum to take the Football Memories project to over twenty towns and cities across Scotland.

We have new groups setting up, new volunteers coming on board, new supporters, and most importantly, more people with dementia being brought together to talk about their days as players or fans, debate their favourite players and teams, and share their very favourite memories about the beautiful game.

It's been a busy but inspiring time, and over the coming weeks, we will be sharing some of our experiences and some of the brilliant and often hilarious memories coming from the groups, and bringing you more news about some exciting plans for Football Memories, including a very special event to mark World Alzheimer's Day on the 21st of September........
