Catch Up Club
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation and Leeds Peer Support Service, Adult Social Care work in partnership to create an experience to connect people to their love of cricket. The Catch Up Club provides facilitated sessions for people living with dementia and their partners to be involved in the cricket experience.
Based at Headingley Cricket Ground, the topic of conversation centres around Yorkshire County Cricket Club, giving those in attendance the inspiration to reminisce and evoke precious memories of their favourite former and current players, famous matches they have witnessed watching Yorkshire and England plus other related topics that may be inspired over a cup of tea and biscuit!
Visits to YCCC started in January 2015 and have continued during 2016, creating a strong support network for sports and more specifically cricket supporters who are suffering with this disease which can lead to isolation and loss of independence.
