Horwich Leisure Centre
More Leisure Centre Community Trust, operator of Stoke Mandeville Stadium, has announced the launch of its new Sport England backed volunteering scheme, which will be run in partnership with the national charity Timebanking UK, the Alzheimer’s Society and Serco Leisure.
For the project’s initial phase, More Leisure has chosen to focus on people with dementia and the carers supporting them. They have identified that many people with dementia and their carers may be inactive and face barriers to participation in leisure and social activities.
Carers, who work with people with dementia, will be offered one hour of free access to their (Serco Leisure managed) leisure facilities, for every hour of time banked with Timebanking UK. This will also be extended to anyone who would like to buddy and support someone with dementia.
