New Year New You? Kick off your 2024 with the Rangers Charity Foundation
Fri 5th January 2024
Our FREE Football Fans In Training (FFIT) fitness course starts back on the 15th January.
The weekly programme works with males and females aged between 35 and 65 years old who are overweight and provides a great opportunity to improve fitness, lose weight and train with fellow supporters at Ibrox.
Each session is split between classroom health education and physical activity sessions and covers issues such as weight management, exercise, diet and healthy eating, alcohol awareness, motivation and well-being.
Men’s FFIT begins on Monday 15th of January between 5pm and 7pm and women’s FFIT starts back on the 19th of January between 6pm and 9pm and the bespoke prostate FFIT for men restarts the same week and you can find out more HERE.
And if you’re looking to work on your mental health this year and we still have you covered. We have a variety of different programmes aimed at helping you work on your mental wellbeing.
Team Talk aims to support men’s mental wellbeing. The two-hour sessions will provide men who experience mild mental health challenges with a secure and friendly space to socialise and talk openly about their thoughts and feelings. Those facing more severe problems are then able to find advice about where best to seek help.
Team Talk Football
This extension of our Team Talk initiative was launched in 2023. Over the course of the two-hour sessions, men can take part in games of football or just have a kickabout to work on their physical wellbeing. Participants can also drop into a mental health catch up area if they wish where they can openly discuss any struggles they may be having in a safe and supportive environment. Free tea and coffee is provided for all who attend.
Our Football Memories project helps to improve the lives of football fans with dementia by using football images and memorabilia from the past to aid recall and memory. We talk about teams and matches from the past and work with images to stimulate memories and conversation.
The Changing Room
The project targets men in their middle years (aged 30-64) and works to help guys better self-manage their mental health and support one another, as part of a team. These sessions are a chance to get away from everyday stresses and chat about football and mental health at the home of Rangers Football Club.
