Supporting Lincolnshire Veterans with their mental Health.
Pull up a sandbag and tell us a story ...
We are currently gathering interest for a new support group at Lincoln City. Connecting to our Team Talk programme, this would be a veteran-specific group to support veterans with their mental health through peer to peer support sessions, physical activity and group activities.

Positively Impact your Mental Health With Sport
Even short bursts of regular exercise has a proven positive impact on mental health. Which is why joining us for Walking Football could be the first step for better mental health for you. Here are just a few ways in which sport and physical activity can positively impact your mental health.
Improve your Mood: Exercise releases feel-good hormones, which tell your brain to improve your mood. Recent studies showed that people who categorised themselves as feeling low noted a significant improvement in mood after they undertook physical activity.
Reduce Stress: People who partake in regular physical activity often have lower stress levels.
Increase Self Esteem: Exercise can often help you to feel better about yourself.
Tackle Depression and Anxiety: GP's often prescribe regular exercise as part of a Mental Health programme to help sufferers of Depression and Anxiety. Taking part in regular activity and sport empowers individuals to self manage their recovery.
Sleep Better: Physical Activity will help to tire you out during the day and therefore help you to get a better nights sleep.
Connect with new people: Sporting activities provide the opportunity to connect with like-minded new people, without the pressure of finding a common ground.
