Are you struggling with your mental health? Sporting Force will be starting an activity-based veterans’ support group in Newton Aycliffe, Durham, from 12th February 2021. Group places are available for up to 15 people under current COVID-19 restrictions. We have had confirmation that this is allowed as we are a Charity offering mental health support to Military Veterans. Anyone participating will be expected to wear face masks. Get in touch today to discover more.
Outdoor activities will promote physical, occupational, and emotional growth, helping people suffering from an array of mental health conditions including:
Weekly Support Group - Outdoor Activities
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Walking is one of the most accessible forms of exercise. It’s the perfect way to keep you healthy, active and reduce your chances of getting sick and it doesn’t cost you a penny. Getting out into nature and going for a walk is also great for your mental wellbeing.
We have some land which we are keen for veterans to get involved in some of the work we intend to carry out which includes the building of a polytunnel, in which veterans will be able to grow produce in the future. Other tasks include log splitting, digging and building fences. These tasks will improve wellbeing and bring back that sense of teamwork and team bonding.
Additionally, hot meals and beverages will be provided.
A programme of activities and events for all Tri-Service Veterans
