As part of the funding received by The National Lottery Community Fund, many young people benefited over the Summer School Holidays by taking part in Hidden Warriors CIC Sports and Activities for Mental Well-being project. This project in Staffordshire, involved over 100 young people. Young people took part in sports clubs that provided many different activities to build self confidence and social skills. Many of these young people attended Stafford Sports Academy that is operated by Stephen Glover. There was some fantastic feedback from the parents/carers on how their child enjoyed taking part in organised sports/activities. One parent said, ”I’ve cried happy tears seeing how my childs self confidence has grown”.
Some of the activities that took place were swimming, horse riding, football, karate and tennis. Sport and Activities bring a host of benefits to the person that is involved. Such as, improving mood and concentration, reduces stress and depression, boosts self confidence and helps to maintain a healthy weight and many other benefits.
The project is still running with a limited amount of funds available, if you live in Staffordshire and believe your child/young person would benefit from taking part in sports or an activity please do get in touch by email to discuss further. Please email, firstname.lastname@example.org
