MENTAL HEALTH AMBASSADOR!
WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT ADAM THOMAS IS NOW A MENTAL HEALTH AMBASSADOR REPRESENTING S-FACTOR ACADEMY as part of the England Athletics Mental Health Ambassador programme.
The England Athletics Mental Health Ambassador programme aims to establish a network of volunteer ambassadors in running clubs and groups across England to support people who are experiencing mental health problems to start running, get back into running, or continue running as well as to improve the mental wellbeing of their existing members.

S-Factor Academy’s Disability Group is the best athletics division for disabled athletes in London; our sessions run every Saturday 11am-midday during School Term (for Lewisham). This summer our Disability Athletics Summer Camp attracted 75 unique participants many of whom transitioned to our Saturday sessions. The group have recently implemented #WalkAndTalk laps with parents of our disabled/ mentally impaired athletes to discuss any concerns or issues prior to the training sessions.
We also have outreach connections in SEN schools Brent Knoll, Drumbeat, Downham & Brockley 6th form, LeSoCo, SELVis, Kaleidoscope.
