The Challenge Hub launches new learning, physical and social challenge
Activity Alliance Associate Member, The Challenge Hub, has today launched a new initiative called 'The Loughborough Challenge' for disabled people and people experiencing a mental health problem aged 25 to 54.
Heavily inspired by the success of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, 'The Loughbrough Challenge' aims to enhance the lives of disabled people and people experiencing a mental health problem by supporting individuals to complete achievements in learning, physical activity, and social contribution.
The Challenge Hub CIC is a private not-for-profit company who encourages people to lead their fullest possible lives by staying physically, mentally, and socially active. This unique initiative is a new addition to The Challenge Hub's already successful 'All in One Challenge' for people over the age of 55.
Richard Pertwee, Founder and Chair of The Challenge Hub said:
"We passionately believe in the power of our challenges to build self-belief through learning new things, taking exercise and helping others – 3 of the 5 steps to mental wellbeing. We therefore offer The Loughborough Challenge to all those aged 25 to 54 who self-identify as experiencing either mental health issues or disability.
"Please do visit The Loughborough Challenge website where members can share their experiences, with content designed to inform, encourage and inspire positive activity.
"We urge everyone to encourage registration by those eligible to participate. You will be offering structure, motivation, recognition, widening of horizons and a means to build self-belief. We hope also that the Challenge may act as a framework for organisations to deliver on their own social objectives.
"Please support us to build an independently operated, publicly recognised, sector-wide challenge as a low cost / potentially high social impact initiative. No cost is involved. Thank you."
