Active Minds

Active Minds will address the growing demand for mental well-being outlets and support. There is often a stigma associated with mental health, so Active Minds intends to combat that and promote positive well-being through the power of sport.

Weekly sessions are more than just showing up for an hour and then heading back home. We aim to develop Active Minds to positively impact the lives of local people, creating a sense of belonging, encouraging new friendships, and improving physical and mental well-being. We want our participants to be part of something bigger, experiencing togetherness and self-achievement.

Active Minds will utilise various facilities across the town to provide accessible football sessions for all. Anyone aged 18+ can get involved, regardless of whether they have ever kicked a ball before. Everybody is welcome.

A typical structured session will run for two hours and will consist of playing football and socialising. It’s more than just football; it’s about being able to switch off for a few hours a day, away from the stresses of everyday life.
