Mental Health

Walsall FC Community Programme are partnering with the National Lottery Community Fund, and linking with local organisations, such as Walsall Rethink and Black Country Healthcare Foundation Trust, to continually improve our mental health provision.

We are currently delivering the ‘Beat The Block’ programme funded by the National Lottery, and working with individuals signposted by local organisations.

The participants enjoy a football session run by our staff, before up to a 30 minute social in the community room. In this safe and friendly environment, they can chat to coaches, each other, and mental health professionals.

We also run a Beat the Block Walking Football session for over 50s to enjoy, running on Wednesday mornings along with the positive wellbeing session.
