The aim of the ‘Living Memory’ scheme is to utilise the potential of the National Library of Wales (NLW) graphic and audiovisual collections to unlock memories and to facilitate reminiscence therapy with older people and those living with dementia.
Thank you to those of you who responded to the ‘Living Memory’ online survey conducted last year. As a result of these responses, the NLW are arranging workshops to share information on how to access digital online collections of old photographs and films, including national collections at the NLW, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, People’s Collection Wales and the British Film Institute Player. We will also update you on the themed packs of old photographs and films that the NLW are compiling to distribute to organisations and groups that wish to participate in the scheme.
The workshops are open to anyone working with older people and/or people living with dementia in Wales.
A timetable of the workshops is attached
To book your place on a workshop, or for more information, please contact Gwyneth or Eilir at the library by Friday, January 25th:

Fairer for Carers
Carers Allowance is the lowest benefit of its kind at £64.60 per week. It is the main benefit for people caring unpaid for family or friends. We want to see Carer’s Allowance significantly increased for all carers in the UK.
In Scotland, Carer’s Allowance is going up by £8.50 per week, to the same level as Jobseeker’s Allowance. In the short term we want Carer’s Allowance in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to be raised by at least £8.50, to match the changes being made in Scotland.
Carers UK is sending a letter on behalf of the 6.5 million carers in the UK to Secretary of State, Esther McVey, calling for Carer's Allowance to be raised to the level of Jobseeker's Allowance.
Please add your signature to this petition, Fairer for Carers you do not have to be a carer, just to care and it only takes a few minutes.
