This episode celebrates World Mental Health Day as we look at the issue of inclusiveness in the sector.

We are joined by the Alzheimer’s Society ambassador Tracey Shorthouse and Programme Partnerships Officer for Sport and Leisure, Steve McFadyen.

As somebody who lives with Alzheimer’s, Tracey discusses her relationship with sport and recreation and highlights the barriers and opportunities that exist to keep everybody physically active.

Mental Health is an area that the Sport and Recreation Alliance is passionate about as showcased by our work with the Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation.

Providing insight from within the sector, the Alliance’s Rasteen Riyahi-Boni, Policy Support Officer, also joins the panel.
