WWTW Team up with Rangers Charity Foundation to deliver a new physical and mental wellbeing workshop for veterans.

The 6-week course will focus on improving wellbeing, increase physical activity, and reduce social isolation


Starting from 16/03/2021, WWTW MEDALS Programme and Rangers Charity Foundation will be working in partnership to deliver a 6-8 week programme, twice a week over Zoom, to support veterans struggling with their mental health. The programme aims to help veterans engage with football as a medium to improve mental health, increase uptake of sport and reduce social isolation.

The course will run two days per week for one hour on a Tuesday from 11:30 to 12:30 and Thursday from 11:30 to 13:00 the course will last six weeks with a possible two week extension if required the sessions and will cover general football chat on the Tuesday with the Thursday looking at a variety of topics to help improve the mental health of the veterans we support including:

 

  • Building resilience
  • Improving wellbeing and mindfulness
  • Improving Social Circles and decreasing social isolation
  • Enhancing confidence
  • Increasing Physical Activity
  • Promoting wellbeing via discussion
  • Bring partners in to talk about what they can do to support our cohort.


This is an exciting opportunity for veterans to get involved with an online community and meet with like-minded individuals. The programme is now fully subscribed thanks to overwhelming interest, but stay tuned for future opportunities.
