Sports:

We are a small voluntary organisation, working with people who have mental health problems living in the community. We are based in Longsight in Manchester but work in Greater Manchester and beyond. For a number of years we have used sport and activity as a way to deliver a service from which people have benefited greatly. These benefits, physically, mentally and socially have been clear to see, in many cases given people a new lease of life. It is now well established and recognised that people benefit from sport and physical activity, which also stimulates feelings of well-being. We use many sports and activities including table tennis, tennis, badminton, basketball, boxercise, hill walking etc. but, not surprisingly, football is by far the most popular.
