Here to support local projects that make Crawley an even better place to live, work and play
Move the Goalposts is our free, inclusive project that enables those currently experiencing (or at risk of experiencing) mental health difficulties to access our weekly sessions at Crawley Town FC. The benefits of sport and physical activity on our mental health are endless: improved mood, decreased chance of depression and anxiety, and a better and more balanced lifestyle. Move the Goalposts sessions will provide participants with an opportunity to meet and participate in sessions aimed at supporting those with personal aims to improve their quality of life. Sessions are adapted to meet the needs of the participants and are solely led by participants with the support of our staff. Individual outcomes may be developed with participants and may include, improving personal and social skills, fitness levels, employability skills and aspects of health and nutrition. Sessions are open to those aged 18+, regardless of ability. We welcome participants supported by agencies.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our aim is to provide participants with a supportive and inclusive environment to allow them to use sport as a vehicle of delivery to spend time developing their own skills and qualities in a relaxed and informal environment. Move the Goalposts will also provide opportunities for participants to socialise, develop and have the chance to work towards personal goals with the support of our staff. Sessions will consist of workshop style sessions based upon the needs of the participants as well as activity sessions to allow participants to take part in sports and activities. As participants progress, support and encouragement will be given to allow them to take a lead in the delivery of sessions, should they wish to. The aim of the sessions is to allow participants to progress at a pace that suits themselves and their development aims. We also allow those who may require support from agency workers to attend with their support staff.
Steps to get it done:
Everyone has mental health – and evidence shows that the benefits of physical activity on our wellbeing are profound, this is our opportunity to support the local community towards their own personal health and wellbeing. Location: Crawley Town FC Stadium
