Mental Health Support Header

With one in four people experiencing a mental health condition at some point in their life, we’re committed to tackling the stigma around mental health. And we believe sport can be a powerful mechanism for overcoming mental health issues.

In partnership with West London Mental Health Trust, our Hounslow Hawks project supports adults with mental health issues through free football sessions.
