Star date: 10th September 2016

HOUSE OF MEMORIES DEMENTIA AWARENESS DAY

This Sunday, 11th September, marks National Dementia Carers' Day, which recognises the contribution family and informal carers make by caring for people living with dementia at home.

Since 2012, National Museums Liverpool has been providing dementia awareness training to over 10,000 carers across the country, and last year, set up workshops for family carers to provide them with new ideas and perspectives, which it's bringing to Salford Museum and Art Gallery on Monday 14th November.

The workshops include character-based video stories to help participants understand the experience of living with dementia and being a carer, trials of the award-winning My House of Memories app, and taking part in dementia-friendly activities at the Museum to show how cultural venues can be a resource in helping to unlock memories, improve communication and understanding, and enrich the lives of those living with dementia.

"We set up our first workshops for family carers in Liverpool last year, to provide them with new ideas and perspectives on caring for their loved ones" says Carol Rogers, Executive Director of Education and Visitors at National Museums Liverpool "Person-centred care is at the heart of our workshops, and acknowledges that an individual's personal history and memory is of huge importance.

"We know that dementia is an emotional subject to talk about, particularly if it affects a person you love" she adds "When you're caring for someone on a daily basis, it can be hard to see past the every day tasks. We have received some incredible feedback from previous workshops, and we hope people will take the opportunity to join us so we can steer them in a positive direction, and help improve the lives of those they care for who are living with dementia."

National Museums Liverpool's House of Memories programme has been commissioned by the Department of Health as part of the Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia 2020.

House of Memories Workshops
Monday 14th November 9:30am-12:30pm, and 1:30pm-4:30pm
Free places can be booked by emailing
learning@liverpoolmuseums.org.uk  or calling 0151 478 4240.

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".
