What does the foundation do?

The Frank Bruno Foundation will provide structured  non-contact boxing sessions aimed to relieve the social, emotional and mental distress that adversely affects the mental health of children, young people and adults.

‘We are aiming to bring together the benefits of non-contact boxing with a solution focused well-being program. The aim is to bring healthy-body and healthy-mind approaches together to provide a holistic and enjoyable approach to supporting people with mental health problems. The aim is to help people to develop a healthier body and a healthier mind, building on their existing physical and emotional strengths and achievements. Our aspiration is that people will use the skills they learn on the programme to develop a happier, more fulfilling and successful future.”

Fighting Back!

The Frank Bruno Foundation is a direct result of Frank wanting to give something back to the community. Frank has faced challenges both in and out of the ring and has always done so with determination, dignity, humor and humility.

But it is Frank’s bravery and honesty in talking about his battles with mental health issues, which continue to earn him the respect of those whose affection he won as a boxer. It is fitting then that supporting sufferers of mental ill-health is where Frank feels his attention best focussed.

Our Mission Statement

The Frank Bruno Foundation is a registered charity which aims to provide support, encouragement and the motivation to succeed for those experiencing or recovering from mental ill-health.

By providing structured opportunities for progressive programmes of non-contact boxing, The Frank Bruno Foundation will directly support participants in building self-esteem, confidence and discipline and applying such skills to their daily lives.

What is Non-contact boxing?

What is it?

Non-contact boxing is boxing without being hit; it is a physical workout which includes a mixture of balance, quick movement and focus but includes no opponents or competitors thereby reducing stress.

What will I learn?

As participants learn more about boxing skills they develop the critical strength and cardio vascular conditions that dramatically improve health and fitness. Hitting special padded gloves and punch bags builds muscle and improves hand-eye coordination, stamina, balance and timing. Non-contact boxing is accessible as it is suitable for all fitness levels.

Who is covered?

Participants are guided through individual programmes and are supported to set and achieve personal goals and targets within such activities as stance & guard technique, footwork, striking and defensive skills, shadow boxing, hitting pads, shuttle runs, body weight exercises, circuit training, speed and agility and strength training.
