Our Social Wellbeing Programme supports over 250 adults in Stockport. Our provision includes a weekly Walking Football group for senior citizens, weekly football/multisport coaching sessions and tournaments for young adults living with disabilities and serious mental illness, and our weekly Drop-in “Sport in Memories” Social Wellbeing Group for people experiencing loneliness and living in social isolation.
Through this provision to a variety of groups with a range of needs, we aim to promote healthy lifestyles; extending opportunity, choice and control – benefiting those attendees physically, socially and emotionally.
The money won will support our Social Wellbeing Programme in funding new equipment, activity costs, Art and Yoga Therapy sessions delivered by professional therapists, venue hire, refreshments, and tournament and coaching costs.
Your vote will make a massive difference in helping us to get as many votes as possible as the more votes we receive the more funding we will get from the total pot of £10,000. As one of the 14 Finalists will be awarded a minimum of £200 up to a maximum of the top prize of £1,500 depending on how many online votes that we receive over the voting period.
