Dementia friendly walking football

If you're into football and you or a friend have been diagnosed with dementia, why not get involved in our dementia friendly walking football sessions?

Sessions will take place at the Taro Leisure Centre in Petersfield and will involve dementia-friendly five-a-side style football, assisted by coaches and volunteers with dementia training.

They will include dementia-friendly equipment such as soft, brightly coloured footballs, to make those playing feel as comfortable as possible.

The next session is being held at The Taro Centre, Petersfield on Monday 30 May at 11am. If you'd like to attend this session please email Bethany Daly, Community Officer, details below.
