Pennine Mencap runs a variety of different services focused on health and well-being. We aim to provide fun, informative sessions to improve our Service Users' general health
In conjunction with our Health Club and focus on lifestyle improvements, sport is a key element of what we do at Pennine Mencap.
One of our favourite sports is walking football. We have held countless indoor walking footie events since 2018, typically at Hurst Community Centre. These are inclusive, friendly and fun, offering an easy way for adults of all abilities to get involved in the beautiful game. Not to mention a little bit competitive when we have an informal mini tournament to end the session!
We also encourage our service users to participate in a selection of physical activities, with our resources including everything needed for sports ranging from badminton to boules, volleyball to netball, and everything in between.
