ESEA DEMENTIA AWARENESS TOURNAMENT 2023
A Collaboration between the Frank Soo Foundation, Chinese Welfare Trust, Brent Chinese Association, Hendon FC and Silver Jubilee Stadium.
It is estimated that there are 25,000 people currently living with dementia from Black, Asian, and minority ethnic groups, which includes the ESEA communities in England and Wales. Getting the best support can sometimes be more challenging for families living with dementia from the ESEA communities, because of the stigma surrounding the condition and the lack of culturally appropriate dementia resources and services.
This tournament is to help raise awareness of the Chinese Welfare Trust and its collaboration with Dementia UK which has provided a Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese) speaking Admiral Nurse who provides Dementia Care services in the London boroughs of Barnet, Brent, Camden, Tower Hamlets and Westminster.
Our aims are to;
1) Raise funds for The Chinese Welfare Trust's Dementia Nurse project; £60k is needed a year to help deliver this much needed project to our communities. (website)
2) Workshops to a) Identify early signs of dementia b) How to deal with dementia c) Signpost to where to get help and support for dementia.
3) Hold a inclusive football tournament.
