Introducing the Mental Health United – Supporting You Fund

We are delighted to announce that we will be running the Mental Health United – Supporting You Fund throughout the remainder of 2023.

What is the Supporting You Fund?

At some point in our lives we all need a little helping hand. Whether it’s losing your job, an unexpected mishap at home that leaves you short for a month or two, or anything else that life throws at you, maintaining mental wellbeing is key. 

Playing sport can have a huge impact on that, and the Supporting You Fund is designed to keep people coming to Football Therapy sessions even when times are tough.

“I’ve had a few stories of people not coming to sessions because of finanicial difficulties in their lives.

Over the years, football has helped get me out of some deep holes. I set up MHU to help people, and sometimes that means a small helping hand financially. It might be just one session, or it might be for a few months. If we can help we will.

The club is in a fortunate enough position that we can run free sessions for those that need it. If you need that helping hand, speak to one of our team and we can help!”

Tim Allen, Mental Health United Founder
