Out of the Woods

The Out of the Woods team and program aim to provide support and education around mental health and wellbeing for members of the Kew Football Club community.

Community football is a place where many different people from different walks of life come together to find pride, joy, and victory in sport. Mental health and wellbeing will always be a part of the sporting experience, but Out of the Woods aims to bring it into the fabric of the club, forming an integral part of the club experience at Kew Football.

At Kew Football Club we recognise and acknowledge that we work and play on the lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nations.

We pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and we extend our respects to the First Nations Peoples we meet throughout our great game.
