Our next free online one hour training session will be on 27 February 2024. Please contact us if you would like to attend.
We provide training as part of the one year membership of the Reminiscence service, and it is also suitable for non members who are interested in the subject. We can also offer bespoke training to other organisations.
Training is an essential part of Reminiscence for care professionals wishing to join our Memory Box scheme. Each member organisation has one free training place each membership year, additional places may be purchased.
We can also offer virtual training online. These sessions are 1 hour long and delivered via teams. Please contact us if you are interested in a virtual training session.

Thank you so much for the excellent training on memory boxes and reminiscence this afternoon. I found it very helpful for work in my current role and there were many practical tips that I will be able to use in an upcoming session linked to our current photography exhibitions. It is fantastic that Reading Museum is offering free training that is easy to access and supports the cultural sector.- Virtual training participant
Memory boxes are a springboard for the opening up and unlocking of personal memories and histories of our clients...bring alive these memories in a safe way.

It was very clear, calm and well paced delivery. We all have busy schedules and not having big chunks of text to read on a presentation or group tasks set was so nice. It felt very supportive and relaxed.- Virtual Training participant
The structure and delivery were clear and the content was comprehensive. I appreciated the way that you included a little of the theory about reminiscence, practicalities around setting up the boxes (content, packaging etc), the loan procedure and advice for running sessions.- Virtual training participant
