Sport 4 all – Inclusion football development
As part of the sport for all project we run a weekly ‘inclusion football’ session. Inclusion appears to be the new word on the block at the moment and seems to be replacing ‘mental health’ specific sessions.
Our weekly session at Thomas Rotherham College has around 20 people attend who have been or are currently homeless, have mental health issues and/or substance misuse problems. We have worked closely with and had referrals from Rush house, lighthouse, early intervention in psychosis team, community mental health teams and Rotherham Drugs and Alcohol service, to name a few.
The lads have participated in a number of matches, tournaments and competitions throughout the year including a 3-1 victory over Middlesborough FC Inclusion team and winning the NHS ‘Good Mood’ League!
Trudi Race (Team manager, disability coordinator) says ‘there is a massive need for these kind of sessions and the outcomes have been amazing. Our next step is to create an 11 a side team out of these lads and get them playing regular competitive football’
Trudi is attending a meeting with Sheffield and Hallamshire FA to discuss the possibility of developing an inclusion 11 a side league in the very near future.
