Wolves Community Trust

Secure Healthcare Solutions are proud to be supporting the Wolves Community Trust

Secure Healthcare Solutions are proud to support the Wolves Community Trust during the 2017/18 season, which brings 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. The Wolves Community Trust are the registered charity of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and they support 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 enables 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.

Secure Healthcare Solutions are very proud to partner with the Wolves Community Trust to help make these great events happen every week. If you have any questions or queries about this, or information on how you too can help, please contact Rachel on rachelsmith@wolvescommunitytrust.org.uk.
