Dementia Advice Sheffield

7 Feb

Dementia Advice Sheffield offers specialist dementia guidance, support and training to professionals and volunteers working with people who have dementia & their families and carers.  Its purpose is to support professionals and volunteers across the city to be dementia-friendly.

This non-clinical service isn’t a public-facing helpline, it is specifically for professionals, by which we mean any staff, workers and volunteers working with people living with dementia and their families, even though they may not actually see themselves as being professionals within dementia care and support.

Upcoming training sessions for professionals include:

  • Can a person with dementia make that decision?
  • Navigating the system for people living with dementia (repeated session following the popularity of the original one featuring a monopoly-style dementia system)
  • Making Homecare Dementia Friendly
  • More Than Just Bingo (making activity provision better for people living with dementia)
  • Making Lunch Clubs Dementia Friendly
  • Nurturing personal & professional relationships with people living with dementia

This Girl Can Community Fund

7 Feb

This fund aims to support women aged 16+ to get active by offering National Lottery grants to local projects that will contribute to overcoming the barriers some women face in getting active: from a lack of opportunities offered in their local area, to cost and availability of childcare.

Sport England is looking to support a wide range of ideas – from those that just need a few hundred pounds, to larger projects nearer £10,000.  They may be able to support a few exceptional projects with funding above this level. They believe that you’re best placed to tell us what’s needed in your community. So, invite you to share your ideas of how to get more local women more active.
