Get Set To Go

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. If you are interested in finding out more about the project and how we have adapted delivery during the lockdown, email [email protected] for more information.

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 

As our regular Mental Health Awareness Training for Sport and Physical Activity providers has been suspended due to the restrictions of lockdown, we are very pleased to be able to share a link to the Mind's online e-learning resources.

It is very similar to the face to face training we have been delivering and has been developed by Mind and UK Coaching, counting for CPD for CIMSPA members.

The training will provide the practical skills and strategies to be able to:

  • build people's resilience, self-esteem and confidence
  • adapt sessions to make them more inclusive
  • enable and support mental health recovery
  • tackle stigma and discrimination.

The training is available free of charge until August 31st and provides a great opportunity for all coaches, trainers, fitness instructors, yoga teachers etc. to develop their skills.

Future Opportunities

As restrictions are lifted and we return to a more regular pattern of service delivery, we hope very much to provide a range of mental health training programmes. When we do, the details will be posted here, so do watch this space or visit our training page here for further info.

We have enjoyed working with partners at Sheffield International Venues, Places For People Leisure, the SUFC Community Foundation and SWFC Community Programme and hope to work with even more providers of sport and leisure activity as restrictions are lifted.
