Life doesn’t stop at a diagnosis, there is still so much to enjoy!

Since our launch in 2016 we have been supporting people living with dementia enjoy the wonderful world of golf.

To date we have successfully delivered over 1000+ golf sessions across the UK, giving hundreds of individuals and families living with a diagnosis the opportunity to improve their physical health, mental health, and social wellbeing.
