Finalists in National Dementia Care Awards

Told in South Yorkshire Advisory Group were selected as Finalists in the National dementia Care Awards Ken Holt Life Story Work Category.
Many of the group attended the Gala Awards Dinner in Nottingham on 6th November. Although we did not win it was great to have our work recognised and we are looking forward to the Showcasing Event on 28th November on Sheffield. Hope to see you there.

Yemeni Dreams Film

The life stories of a group of older men from the Yemen living in Sheffield can be viewed: www.vimeo.com/75967944
The film has evolved from the idea of seeing how life story work may be used with different cultural groups.

Life Story Work Resource Pack being developed

We are pleased to be able to announce that development has started on our life story work resource pack. The content for this has been explored through focus groups and conversations with people with dementia, family carers and health and social care staff. We plan to launch the pack at the Showcasing event in November. An exciting move forward in our aim to help more people to benefit from life story work.
