‘Reducing Isolation + Connecting People’

About Us

Sporting Recovery is about empowering individuals to be self-sufficient. Everyone should have the assistance and chance to manage their mental health. Our Wellness Centres provide a pleasant, stigma-free atmosphere where you can participate in team and individual sporting activities. A location where individuals may minimise social isolation and become more socially engaged while receiving dietary and lifestyle guidance.


Wellness Café

We encourage participants to unwind, recharge, and chat with someone after engaging in some physical activity. Our Wellness Coaches are available to promote healthy lifestyle decisions.

Wellness Clubs

It is unnecessary to win every game to enhance your mental wellness. Exercise provides a physical boost that helps release endorphins in your brain, making you feel better emotionally. You may also sleep better at night, waking up refreshed and alert.

Wellness Programme

We are celebrating seven years of Well-being expertise in our Wellness Centres.

Participating in our sports and well-being programmes allows you to exercise and meet new people while improving your physical and mental health, whether you are in distress or struggling with mental health concerns.


Wellness Centres

A place where everyone may get the help, encouragement, and opportunities they need to manage their mental health. There is no obligation, simply a chance to get in shape and feel accepted.


“I can’t go to Sporting Recovery today because I don’t have any money,” 

We think that having mental health challenges or living with a mental illness does not make us victims. We ask anybody participating in the Sporting Recovery Wellness Project to make a small gift to help fund the programme and create an equal relationship that benefits all of us. You can donate in the SR Donation Jar, usually on a table in the Wellness Café area. Donations can be made online at

Sporting Recovery is a community organisation.

Our fundraising efforts support our activities.

Thank you, 
Sporting Recovery Team

“This is the first time in years that I have enjoyed being with other people. It is hard when you are seen in a negative light all the time, but at Sporting Recovery, I can be myself. I’m treated with respect. I feel positive and full of energy – I love it”

What they don't say

There is a mountain of information available about mental health. It’s not unexpected that Doctors may not tell all.

Sports Assistant

We’d love you to join our team. Whatever you enjoy doing, and however much time you can commit, there’s a volunteer role.
