Sporting Memories Foundation Scotland

The Sporting Memories Foundation Scotland is a charity like no other. We support older people across the UK living with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport. By sharing memories of sporting moments and tapping into a passion for sport we help people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.

Funding Neuro

Our aim is to accelerate the development of new treatments for many of the most serious neurological conditions. We provide solutions to the serious failings across neurosurgical care. We do not focus on one single neurological condition nor do we duplicate the work being carried out by other charities. Instead we identify the issues that hinder progress and find solutions so that research and innovative therapies can be accelerated.
