Tricky to Talk

Through a close partnership between with Nottingham Forest, we’re delivering our life-changing Tricky to Talk programme – which aims to encourage fans and communities to talk more openly about mental health problems and seek the support they need.

Tricky Hubs

Tricky Hubs are a relaxed, informal space, where you can talk to others who may be experiencing mental health difficulties and share your experiences. Facilitated by our lead mental health practitioner Claire, the Hubs provide the opportunity to ask questions to a mental health professional and open up a confidential and supportive environment for people to share and discuss their own thoughts and feelings.

Tricky to Talk is a collaborative programme created and run by Nottingham Forest Football Club and Nottingham Forest Community Trust. It aims to encourage fans to talk more openly about their mental health while raising awareness and reducing stigmas.

Due to COVID restrictions, Tricky Hubs are being hosted online and are held fortnightly on Zoom. If you wish to join one of our sessions or find out more, please email trickytotalk@nottinghamforest.co.uk.

Disability

Our disability programmes provide tailored football and multi-sport sessions for people with different disabilities – facilitating happier and healthier lives while experiencing the social benefits of being active.

Open to both children and adults, Nottingham Forest Community Trust’s disability projects create accessible opportunities to participate in physical activity sessions. Through both schools and inclusive clubs across Nottinghamshire, we ensure that people with a disability are able to achieve their full potential through physical activity within sport.

Collectively, our team provides people with any disability the freedom to enjoy an active life. As a result, our professional coaches regularly organise a diverse range of inclusive multi-sport sessions which cater for all participants.
