Duncan’s Club is a support programme, held by Norwich City Community Sports Foundation, for people with dementia.
Over 12,000 people in Norfolk are living with dementia. Duncan’s Club, named after Norwich City’s iconic former captain Duncan Forbes, is a weekly session that includes mild activity, which has been proven to slow shrinkage of the part of the brain that deals with memory.
Sessions are split into three delivery elements: Activate – to help participants stay physically active, Reminisce – using Norwich City as a stimulus to memory, and Talk – a social session in The Nest’s café.
Duncan’s Club is a 90-minute session every Thursday morning and afternoon at The Nest, in Horsford.
Sessions take place on Thursdays from 10:00am to 11:30am and 12:00pm to 1:30pm, and are free to join.
