An estimated 38,000 people in Norfolk each year experience loneliness
Poor mental health can affect any of us during our lifetime, while inactivity comes with an increased risk of major illness.
According to the NHS website: “Research shows that physical activity can boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.”
“People who exercise regularly have a lower risk of developing many long-term (chronic) conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some cancers.”
The Community Sports Foundation uses the physical and social benefits of sport to improve people’s mental health and physical wellbeing. Our work helps to combat loneliness, anxiety, and inactivity for people in Norfolk.
We rely on fundraising, donations and other support to sustain our work in this area, so that we can help the people of Norfolk to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle.
