What is it?

Building on the success of our 2018 ‘Sporting Hackney Mind: Summer World Cup Programme’, Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest and Sporting Hackney FC have teamed up to offer Hackney residents the chance to participate in an exciting eight-week football programme.

‘Sporting Hackney Mind’ is a fun and unique project sponsored by the London Football Association and Kings’ Sport that aims to improve mental wellbeing, tackle loneliness and bring the community together through sport. Over the eight-week course, team members will have the chance to train with professional football coaches from Sporting Hackney FC and have access to qualified wellbeing practitioner from Mind CHWF who can offer individual support around mental health and disabilities

Who’s it for?

The all-inclusive programme is open to everyone, from absolute beginners to more experienced players, and family and carers are more than welcome to join in the football fun or to cheer from the side-lines!
