September is Dementia Awareness Month
Dementia Awareness Month is held from 1 September to 30 September nationwide.
The theme for the month is Creating a Dementia-Friendly Nation.
The goal is to encourage Australians to become dementia-aware, have a better understanding of what it is like for a person to live with dementia, and ultimately be encouraged to create communities where people with dementia are supported to live a high quality of life with meaning, purpose and value.

All Abilities Gala Day
More than 30 players from Balmain and Marrickville teams + ten buddies (volunteers) turned out in late March 2015 for the season-opening Gala Day of the All Abilities Soccer competition.
It was a triumph! The competition tripled in size from last year. Kids whose parents did not expect them to participate, took to the field with gusto.
