Mental Health & Wellbeing Programme

Welcome to our Mental Health & Wellbeing Programme at London Tigers, where we’re committed to addressing health inequalities within disadvantaged communities and forging a path towards a healthier society.

Breaking Down Barriers

Studies have illuminated a concerning trend – over half of individuals in black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) communities engage in little to no sport or physical activity. These levels of inactivity are particularly pronounced within specific ethnic groups, with just 26% of Asian women meeting recommended physical activity levels compared to 31% of White British Women (Sport England, Active People, 2015).

Cultural Sensitivity

At London Tigers, we recognise that engagement barriers often stem from cultural and religious sensitivities. We’ve broken these barriers by tailoring our sports and physical activities to be culturally and religiously sensitive, ensuring that everyone feels comfortable and included.

Addressing Inequalities

Our programme takes a multi-faceted approach to address health inequalities. Here’s how:

We conduct invigorating physical activity sessions that get everyone moving and motivated

Through workshops, we promote healthy eating and living habits, empowering our community to make informed choices.

We host women-only sessions and activities for parents and children to ensure inclusivity and a supportive environment.

Targeted campaigns raise awareness about specific health issues, equipping our community with knowledge for healthier lives.

Engaging events and festivals like sports days and competitions foster a sense of community and shared achievement.

We offer sports sessions with clear routes for progression in Badminton, Cricket, and Football – nurturing talent and confidence.

Mental Health Matters

Our dedication to mental health extends far beyond the physical. During the challenging times of COVID-19, we initiated many comprehensive mental health outreach programmes benefitting women, men, and children from the BAME communities.

Online Engagement

Through online platforms, we not only kept our members physically active with Zumba, aerobics, dance classes, and more but also provided spaces for them to share their thoughts and feelings. Workshops, friendly online quizzes, counselling sessions, and football games with opportunities for men to talk openly were some of the highlights.

Empowering the Youth

Our mentoring sessions with young people address critical mental health issues, identity crises, and challenges like bullying. We’ve successfully diverted young people away from gang violence, knife crimes, antisocial behaviour, and substance abuse through these sessions.

Supporting women

For our female members, we’ve created a safe haven where they can connect and share their concerns. Many battle self-esteem issues, and we assist with practical personality development workshops, fitness programmes, and self-care lessons, helping them prioritise their wellbeing.

Empowering Minds: London Tigers’ Impact on Children’s Mental Health

In a world where the wellbeing of our children often takes a back seat, London Tigers stands as a beacon of hope, championing mental health through sports, mentorship, and transformative activities.

For too long, the mental health of children, particularly in Black, Asian, Minority, and Ethnic (BAME) communities, has been overlooked. Yet, it’s a critical aspect of their overall development, influencing academic performance, social interactions, and future prospects.

  1. Sports as Therapy: Through engaging sports activities, we provide a safe outlet for children to express themselves, manage stress, and build resilience. From football to cricket, our diverse programs cater to various interests, fostering a sense of belonging and well-being.

  2. Mentoring Matters: Our dedicated mentors offer guidance, support, and a listening ear to children navigating the challenges of adolescence. By nurturing positive relationships, we empower young minds to overcome obstacles and thrive.
  3. Community Engagement: We’re committed to breaking the stigma surrounding mental health in BAME communities. Through workshops, seminars, and awareness campaigns, we spark conversations, educate families, and promote early intervention.

Together, we can rewrite the narrative on children’s mental health. Whether through volunteering, donations, or spreading the word, your support enables us to reach more children in need and create a brighter future for all.
