Mind in Kingston


We believe that mental health issues shouldn't be a barrier to physical activity for anyone. Our physical activity programme supports people with mental health issues to get active to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Delivered in partnership with community partners, we offer taster sessions in different physical activities or weekly structured group 

How to join:

Most of our physical activities are open to anyone who feels that physical activity could benefit their mental health. Individuals can self-refer or be referred by a health professional, support worker or a via another charity.

  • Happy Feet Walking Group - July 2021

Join our friendly group every Monday to explore Kingston's green parks and riverside. Led by our volunteer Barbara who is a member of Kingston Ramblers, the walks are easy to moderate and incorporate a break so people can leave at that point or continue on.

Previous walks have included the Woodland Walk in Bushy Park and through Home Park towards Hampton Court.

Contact Rachel Dykins (details below) for further information on how to join.

  • Football for Mental Health - ongoing

We are home to Kingstonian Mind United FC; a football club made up of individuals (18 years and over) who have lived experiences of mental health issues and who share a passion for the beautiful game of football!   We are open to beginners and players of any level, as our main focus is creating a safe and welcoming environment to get active by playing football. 

As part of our Get Set to Go programme, we welcome you to come along to meet the team and experience one of our weekly, free training sessions. This opportunity has enabled many new members to decide to get involved with our inclusive mental health football team, Kingstonian Mind United FC. The team is supported and trained weekly by a Coach from AFC Wimbledon and supported by our Physical Activity Coordinator from Mind in Kingston.
