Sporting Hackney Mind is a mental-health community football project that we have developed in partnership with Mind in the City, Hackney & Waltham Forest.
The project is open to people of all ages and backgrounds. The project was launched to coincide with the start of the 2018 football World Cup.
The initial project ran for 8 weeks and was a great success. Since then we've run 10 week programmes three times a year.
The summer programme takes place on Saturday mornings at Hackney Marshes. The Autumn/Winter and Spring programmes are held at Kings Hall on Monday evenings.
During the Covid19 pandemic, we're staying in touch with participants through our blog shfcmind.wordpress.com/
