To aid social cohesion within the community affected by Grenfell. We achieve this by creating support networks for people who are isolated

The objects of Minds United Football Club is to connect the community together as a means of actively improving the mental, physical, social and emotional wellbeing of adults in the borough who suffer from a wide range of mental health issues, as well as substance misuse. At our first session in July 2019, 7 people attended. Thanks to the popularity of the sessions, our dedication and interest from a number of funders, we have grown. We now have over 100 beneficiaries engaging with us, and benefiting from our services. In June 2020, we became a registered Community Interest Company (CIC).

Minds United FC is a peer led organisation. Peer support within a “Football Therapy” initiative plays a vital role.  Being involved with people who have had similar lived experiences, in a safe environment helps build confidence and tackles that feeling of loneliness. Our sessions take place in a safe environment where adults from different backgrounds can come together and forget about their problems, whilst playing football.
