Football and Coaching will be led by Halifax Town and their professional coaching team whilst Invictus Wellbeing will provide its interventions through highly skilled and qualified mental health professionals.

Running three sessions of 5-aside football and peer led intervention sessions  between February and March (dates to be confirmed) these sessions will use football as a way of addressing issues such as anxiety, low mood, anger management and emotional regulation.
