SCL Football Health & Well-Being workshops use the power of sport and recreation to promote well-being, with a special focus on encouraging physical activity and social interaction contributing to good mental health.
The sessions equally combat social isolation, exclusion and loneliness, by helping guests to gain a sense of team spirit and belonging.
The first sessions were undertaken in October 2019 as a pilot with just an hours play in an evening. The sessions proved so successful that we revised the model during the pandemic to focus more broadly on health and well-being incorporating warm-up exercise session some led by the players themselves, non-contact play and a socially distanced lunch.
Partnership working is at the heart of the work undertaken by SoundCafe. Our sessions are made possible by Leicester City in the Community the charitable section of Leicester City Football Club who provide the coaches. They also facilitate with mental health and well-being workshops including a trip to Bradgate Park.
