Moors Form Partnership With ManHealth

Moors in the Community are delighted to announce a partnership with ManHealth, a local company providing support for men suffering from depression and other mental and physical health issues.

The County Durham based ManHealth are the only voluntary sector organisation using a proactive approach to address the crisis in men’s health, providing free peer support groups across the region.

The Club will now be hosting weekly drop-in sessions at The Brewery Field every Monday evening between 6pm and 8pm to play a vital role in supporting male Moors fans and building a healthier community.

“This is such an important link-up for us at Moors in the Community and the Club as a whole,” explained Luke Cowie, the Club’s Community Development Manager.

“As part of our remit, we want to have a major impact across as many different areas as we can throughout our local community and targeting this crisis in men’s health has long been a priority.

“It is estimated that 1 in 5 men will experience major depression at some point in their lives and the work than ManHealth are doing is invaluable in ensuring that those who suffer can see the light and move forward.”

ManHealth will also be carrying out collections at several of Moors’ home fixtures to not only give fans the chance to donate but also meet and talk to those involved with the organisation and find out more.

“We are delighted to be working with Spennymoor Town FC and Moors in the Community in bringing our male peer support group to The Brewery Field,” added ManHealth’s Founder/Director, Paul Bannister.

“ManHealth have been running male peer to peer support groups since 2017 and during this time have supported thousands of men with this proactive approach to tackle the ongoing crisis with men’s health.”

The first group will be hosted at The Brewery Field on Monday 5th February and all males over the age of 18 are welcome to attend.
