Coping Through Football

Evaluation Report 2018

Coping Through Football is an innovative project that focuses on the recovery of young people and adults experiencing mental health problems with the intention of helping them to live more independently. In doing so the project is seeking to transform and add sustained value to existing community mental health services. Coping Through Football highlights the value of multi-agency working by demonstrating how two charities (London Playing Fields Foundation and Leyton Orient Trust) can collaborate with the NHS (NELFT) to use football to improve the lives of one of society’s most marginalised groups.
