kickstart ss 1


The kickstart programme is designed to offer any mental health, addiction, and recovery service users over the aged 16+ the opportunity to attend weekly football sessions at North Lanarkshire Council Venues. These sessions are to allow the participants to play football in a fun and safe environment. The NLC coaches that deliver the programme are fully trained and PVG checked to allow them to engage with the participants and create a positive and open atmosphere.

We provide additional structured football sessions to improve confidence, nutritional information, self-esteem and social skills. The programme will also address issues such as boredom and social isolation. We will provide the groups with additional training kit. Along with this, we have created a Kickstart United football team which participates in the Scottish FA Wellbeing league, and this is open for any of the players to join.
