The Get Set to Go have been busy thinking about how best to stay active and positive during this period of lockdown. With the coronavirus suspending our 12 week programme and in order to support all our service users, we've created some tips on how to stay healthy and keep fit during lockdown. We know being physically active can enhance your mood so how about taking a look to see what might make you feel good?"

Our Get Set to Go programme aims to improve the quality of life for anyone with a mental health problem through access to sport and physical activity in the local community.

With support from Sport England and the National Lottery, Get Set to Go is proven to help overcome the barriers that some of us face when trying to get active for our physical and mental health.

Activities

We will be running a series of activities throughout the duration of the project, the next of which starts in February. We are running a 12 activity programme to support individuals who need a little extra help and encouragement to participate in physical activity. Participants will meet with the Project co-ordinator to discuss their needs and interests and will receive 12 weeks of guided physical activity as well as social time with fellow participants. You will be supported by our our Peer Mentors, wjo will be on hand to make sure you get the very best out of the activities you take part in.

Volunteering Opportunities

As part of the programme, a team of Peer Mentors help us support participants to enjoy the benefits of physical activity.

We have had a great response to the project and have a full team of volunteers currently working with us, but if you are interested in volunteer opportunities at Sheffield Mind please feel free to get in touch.

Training 

We are also providing Mental Health Awareness Training for Sport and Physical Activity providers. Further details about our training programme will be posted here so do watch this space.

We are looking forward to working in partnership with Sheffield International Venues, Places For People Leisure, the SUFC Community Foundation and SWFC Community Programme plus other smaller activity and leisure providers across Sheffield.
