Sport for Confidence Posted on 17 Feb 2020

Sport for Confidence have been commissioned by Southend Borough Council to provide sport sessions for carers. You don't need to live in Southend-on-Sea to take part.

They have their first session starting on the Thursday 30 May from 11am to 1pm at Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre, Garon Park Cricket Ground, Eastern Avenue, Southend-on-Sea SS2 4FA.

This session is a drop-in session and carers can come along and leave anytime between 11am and 1pm. Carers are more than welcome to just come and watch. All sports will be tailored to the needs of the carers and the emphasis is on fun and participation.

Carers can bring the person they care for along to the session, and a session will be provided for them as well, for free.

Carers can be any age; have disabilities themselves; be paid carers; care for family members; or have cared for someone who has now passed. Everyone is welcome.

If you are anxious about attending, please feel free to contact Megan Potts, Occupational Therapist on Mobile: 07394 564 942 or Email:
