Case Studies in Bury

Bury Basketball Alliance CIC

Project: This project supports men (40+) who want to increase physical fitness and discuss mental wellbeing. Funding has supported a separate basketball session so that certain health conditions can be accommodated. The sessions are followed by a session talking about mental wellbeing, delivered by a qualified practitioner, to break down barriers and connect through shared experiences.

Impact: Around 30 registered men from different backgrounds and different abilities.


  • Created a Facebook group and invited participants to join, content was added weekly and conversations took place online after feedback that a formal setting around tables wasn't suitable.
  • Adapted sessions to include warm-ups and skill-based drills in addition to 3x3 games.
  • Creation of a YouTube channel supported the promotion of sessions on social media channels.
