Saints In the Community Sponsorship
Sidey is delighted to be in partnership with Saints in the Community and provide sponsorship for their amazing inclusion through sport, mental health & wellbeing football teams.
Originally part of St Johnstone’s community department, and now an integral part of the Community Trust, mental health & wellbeing football kicked off in Perth in 2010.
The programme has gone from strength to strength, engaging with over 60 unique adults ranging from the ages of 16 to 64 years old.
In July 2021 the Community Trust launched an evening Mental Health & Wellbeing Football provision Let’s Kick It.
The new provision was launched in response to the impact of COVID-19 and its subsequent lockdowns, providing an opportunity for people in employment, or otherwise unavailable during the day, to immerse themselves in football and meet likeminded people.
Steve Hardy, Sidey’s Joint Managing Director commented – “We are delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause. I think we have all been affected by COVID-19 in some form and organisations like Saints in the Community provide invaluable support to communities during uncertain times such as these and beyond”.
