              Our Story

              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.

              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.
