New sport project for young people in Birmingham with mental health illness

With funding from Sport England’s small grants scheme and Birmingham Council’s Community Safety Fund, Start Again Project CIC is launching a new six-month ‘Healthy Lifestyles’ project that uses sport and activity to improve the well-being of young people with Mental Health illness in Birmingham.

Working closely with Forward Thinking Birmingham (FTB) — the city’s mental health service for young people — the project will ensure that service users from the Early Intervention Service can access social recovery through sport and activity.

Start Again Project CIC will also be developing further sport-specific ‘well-being clubs’ beyond Early Intervention Servicer users so that other services and agencies can refer young people.

For more information call 0121 604 9637 or send mail to project director Jamie Bunch.
