Lingo Flamingo

Robbie Norval
University of Stirling

Recent research indicates that speaking a foreign language can postpone the effects of dementia by up to five years.  This incredible fact led Robbie Norval to set up Lingo Flamingo, a social enterprise business offering tailored language classes to older adults across Scotland.

Working with care homes, day centres and organisations including Dementia in the Community and Alzheimer Scotland, the company has delivered in excess of 1,000 courses since launching in 2015.
