Rob Womack

Health, Wellbeing & Partnerships Manager

Sheffield City Trust has been a member of SDAA since 2013, where we have been able to learn about the wider dementia community in Sheffield and how our venues can be more proactive about being inclusive.  We have developed a new weekly dementia and physical activity session at Concord Sports Centre.  We have launched monthly tea dances at Ponds Forge.  We deliver activities in Care Homes and support partner activities and events related to dementia.

Sheffield Theatres

Crucible, Lyceum and Studio Theatres

We are a Dementia Friendly organisation and offer a welcoming place for those living with Dementia.  We offer Dementia Friendly performances, which will include pre-show workshops and a supportive environment for our audience.

Every month we host a free Dementia Friendly Tea Dance.

Wincobank Village Hall

Newman Road

Wincobank Village Hall is a newly refurbished centre for community activities in Wincobank. It has level access , a car park, a large room for activities, a smaller room, kitchen facilities, and a very pleasant outdoor space with seating. It can be booked by any group or individual for activities. Ones we currently do relevant to people with dementia are:

- monthly 'singalong' sessions, with a vocalist very experienced in working with dementia clients. This is open to anyone, and several local residential homes regularly bring people along. It is free, with refreshments provided.

- drop in sessions with refreshments alternate Thursday mornings (toast) & Friday afternoons (cakes). These are very relaxed sessions attended by local residents; anyone is welcome.

Chloe Rodgers

Sheffield Hallam University

Broadly speaking my PhD topic is around exploring the use of physical activity for people living with young-onset dementia. My passion for this research stems from attending the 'I Can' physical activity sessions for people living with young-onset dementia at Concord Leisure Centre. I regularly volunteer at the Alzheimer's Society Younger Persons Day Centre. I love meeting new people, hearing their stories and sharing new experiences. I'd really like to connect with others who are passionate about supporting people living with dementia to live their best life. I'm a Dementia Friends Champion and would be keen to deliver Dementia Friends sessions for organisations across the Sheffield Dementia Action Alliance network. Please feel free to drop me an email ([email protected]).
