Success is where preparation & opportunity meets

Sporting Recovery Wellness Centre is about giving people the ability to be independent, but with support.

WHY US

In 2017 we were given the Southwark Stars Community Group of the Year Highly Commended Award. Our programmes promote structure and social interaction in people who have suffered or are suffering from mental distress. As a non-profit organisation limited by guarantee, the company’s profits are invested in creating a positive impact within the community. As part of our investment programme, we select and train service users to become Sporting Recovery coaches across several sport and exercise disciplines. 

OUR STORY

Sporting Recovery is a not for profit Community Interest Company, providing social interaction opportunities through physical activity. We 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).  We use physical activity and social interaction as vehicles to raise self-esteem, reduce social isolation and promote the wellbeing of people experiencing mental distress and those recovering from serious mental illness.

OUR APPROACH

“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.

Our Team

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.
