Chelsea Foundation provide sessions to help reduce social isolation

The Foundation has offered a variety of online activities including giving our pensioner groups the opportunity to access free exercise equipment, and virtual exercise classes provided by members of the Chelsea staff.

Working alongside Stoll, an organisation who house and help vulnerable veterans, the Foundation’s Health and Wellbeing team have delivered coffee mornings, exercise and mobility circuits and chair-based exercise sessions all via online video calls.

Participants were also given an Activate Seniors activity booklet and equipment pack to give them guidance on how to keep both the body and mind active while at home during lockdown.

Participants on our Bridging Forces and Activate Seniors programmes were also provided with iPads to ensure they were able to stay connected with the club and their families.

The Foundation also created a series of Team Talk support networks for groups to keep in touch, while Chelsea players past and present checked in via online calls with our walking football participants.
