In the UK, one in four people will experience a mental health problem each year. We believe that social connectedness and physical activity have demonstrable impacts on an individual’s wellbeing and are committed to offering opportunities for both in our communities. We’re kicking things off in Kingston.
In March 2016, we launched United Kingston, a partnership with The Royal Borough of Kingston, Kingston NHS CCG, Mind in Kingston, Balance CIC Kingston and Comfort Care Services to offer physical activity and employment training opportunities to residents of Kingston with mental health needs. Together, we’re giving adults in Kingston the chance to take part in football and employability programmes.
