SMART and London Cyrenians Housing are re-launching their healthy living initiative- The Healthy Kickers Community Football Group on 23rd November 2011 following very successful pilot run for the past 4 months. Both SMART & LCH have a long standing history of providing support services to vulnerable people across London, and in Kensington & Chelsea in particular. In addition, this project supports Cllr. Julie Mills‚ (RBKC Mayor) launch of The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation, which will draw on existing charities and expertise to tackle isolation via activity, inclusion and opportunity.
The Healthy Kickers meet every Wednesday (12-2pm) at the Westway Sports Centre and benefit from professional training by Queens Park Rangers’ coaches. Support Staff is also always be on hand to provide motivation and additional advice, to ensure participants develop the confidence to engage fully with the sessions. The sessions will cover basic fitness, graduated levels of football training and 5-7 a side matches.
We will adapt all sessions to meet the fitness & support needs of all who attend, so please encourage all service users to try, or even start by watching sessions to build their confidence. For those with more developed skills, the professional coaches will be able to challenge and improve them appropriately, within the group. find out more by clicking here
