Who We Are
In 2017 we were given the Southwark Stars Community Group of the year Highly Commended Award. Our programmes promotes structure and social interaction in lives of people who have suffered or are suffering from mental distress.
A community is judged by how it treats its most vulnerable. We are passionate that the ‘Unseen & Unheard’ be included and served within our community. Our team come with a wealth of experience in mental health and sport education.

Sporting Recovery CIC (a non-profit Community Interest Company) evolved in 2014 from a successful clinical pilot project, funded by the Maudsley Charity and working with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM). The project looked to address the difficulties mental health users experience when trying to reintegrate back into their local communities. Over 40% of the service users on the programme were able to either reduce or come off their prescribed medication.
“Excluded from society, medicated and left alone… anybody would be destroyed, let alone someone who’s already fragile.”
Sporting Recovery is about giving people the ability to be independent. Our ethos is that people should have the support, encouragement and opportunities to manage their mental health.
