In the UK, mental health issues affect one in four of us annually, with 5 million people accessing mental health care in 2022/23, and 1.2 million people estimated to be on the waiting lists for mental health services in 2023. 

Sport in Mind's mission to transform the nation's mental health through sport and physical activity has never been more important.

Take a look at our annual report to read about the impact we are having, moving from a small Reading-based charity to an organisation that delivers across 14 counties in 140 locations throughout England and Wales, transforming the lives of people suffering with mental health problems through our sport and physical activity programmes

With NHS mental health referrals at record levels, there has never been a more important time for Sport in Mind's unique services- we know there is so much more to do.

Which is why we are delighted to launch our 7 year strategy to tackle the issue head on, creating a roadmap to become a national provider of high quality, inclusive programmes that support some of the most vulnerable members of society into more active and healthier lifestyles

I hope you enjoy reading our report, and feel inspired by our strategy to transform the nation's mental health through sport. If you would like to work with us on the next stage of our journey, we'd love to hear from you!
