Sporting Chance

What we do

Sporting Chance runs two days per week over the course of eight weeks. It is made up of a series of interactive mental health and well-being workshops which run in the mornings. In the afternoons, there is the opportunity to get involved in sporting activities alongside or partner football organisations in each area. Young people will develop leadership skills, build confidence and resilience and improve physical health at the same time.
