Team Motivation - YMCA Inclusive Lives

Team Motivation is a service for people aged over 16 living with a disability or mental illness who need a little help getting active and involved in their local area.

  • Do you feel anxious about starting something new?
  • Don’t want to go alone?
  • Don’t know how to get somewhere?
  • Do you feel nervous about meeting new people?
  • Don’t know where to start?

Sign up to Team Motivation using the form on the Inclusive Lives website and you will be linked you up with a friendly Team Motivation buddy to help you start a new activity in your area.

Who will buddy with me?

After talking to you and your family, you will be buddied up with a Team Motivator (TM) who shares similar interests and likes similar activities. TMs are trained volunteers who are friendly, encouraging, open minded and reliable. You will attend a first meeting with the Team Motivator, the YMCA LSW Inclusive Lives Co-ordinator and your family or carer. This is a great chance to meet and see if they are a good match.

Your Team Motivator will show you what activities are on in the area, enjoy each others company, provide support on public transport and try new activities with you.
