Get Vocal

Blackpool FC Community Trust are proud to be launching Get Vocal – a group for men to turn up & talk.

The group will run every Monday evening from 6-8pm in the North Stand Community Hub at Blackpool FC Stadium. There is no need to register, you can just turn up and talk. The first session will take place on Monday 10th October, which is also World Mental Health Day.

The provision has been developed in partnership with Blackpool FC and Blackpool Council. It builds on the recent ‘Get Vocal’ campaign which has featured on Blackpool FC’s away shirt as main sponsor in recent seasons. The group aims to provide a safe space for men to come together and talk to peers, in a non-judgmental setting.

Free refreshments will be provided each week. Please note this group is for men aged 18+.

Ashley Hackett, CEO of Blackpool FC Community Trust said,

“Supporting local men and our fan base is a role we are really proud to develop. The group is there for gents to simply come along and talk to other people and if they choose to ask for help, it’s there if they need it. The group is the first in what we hope can develop into multiple evenings and venues if the need is there.  We would like to thank the Blackpool FC and Blackpool Council for their support in setting this up.”
