Secure Healthcare Solutions is proud to support Wolves Community Trust during the 2017/18 season.

We have teamed up with the trust to bring the fantastic sport of walking football to people in and around Wolverhampton. The aim of walking football is to help older people, or those with limited mobility, remain active and fit, while still pursuing their love for the beautiful game in a fun and sociable environment.

Wolves Community Trust, the registered charity of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, supports the local community through delivering projects relevant to sport, health, education, inclusion and community donations.

In the UK around 22% of men die before the age of 65, compared to 13% of women. Although physically active men have a 20 – 30% reduced risk of premature death and 50% less chronic disease, by the age of 55-64 only 32% of men say they take the recommended half hour of exercise five times a week.

The new sporting craze of ‘Walking Football’ may enable people to continue playing football into their 60s and 70s while reaping a multitude of health benefits, according to Aston University researchers. Walking Football has recently taken the country by storm, becoming one of the fastest growing sports nationwide. Where teams used to be few and far between, there are now multiple teams in just one city. It is the same beautiful game, just at a slower pace with minimal impact tackling helping to make it more inclusive. A lot of Walking Football sessions limit the age to over 50’s only but we also acknowledge that younger people may play due to reasons such as injury or low fitness levels. For full details of all our sessions please see below. Secure healthcare Solutions is very proud to partner with wolves community trust and help making these great events happen every week.   If you have any questions or queries then please contact Rachel on rachelsmith@wolvescommunitytrust.org.uk
