We encourage regular feedback from those who attend Kick Start FC to help us achieve our charitable aims and to ensure we are meeting the expectations we have set for our service users. 



"Kick Start FC has been amazing and has helped me in so many ways. It has allows me to get out of the house, do something fun, and give myself a bit of escapism. The open discussions on mental wellbeing gives me a place where I don't feel alone. I am so grateful for the people I have met and for the friends I have made along the way."

"I have definitely felt that I am now more able to talk about my mental health - particularly when I am at work. Kick Start FC is something that I can look forward to each week. It gives me an outlet for my mental health, whether that is to losing myself within the session or to just talk and listen to others. It has also given me the opportunity to play football despite getting on in years."

"Kick Start FC is great! Everyone is friendly and supportive.  It's good to get out and get some fresh air and blow off steam whilst at the same time getting a bit of much needed exercise. As my football skills (non existent) improve so does my confidence"

"I have genuinely loved attending every single session. It has made me realise that what I considered to be normal thoughts and feelings, was actually a mental health issue. Football therapy has shown me ways to cope with this, helped me to meet new people who have become great friends, and has given me a support network; all while playing a game I really enjoy."

"I would highly recommend kick start FC to anyone and everyone. My life has changed for the better since going to their ladies football sessions and I couldn’t be more thankful to the team. I was so nervous going to the first session on my own, but everyone is so welcoming and friendly. It’s like having a second family,  and I know I always have someone to talk to if I need to. The football therapy sessions are always full of laughs, and it's a great 'pick me up'. Give it a go you won’t regret it!"
