The Collingwood Knights Football Club participates in the Victorian Reclink Australian Football League. Participants face varying challenges in their lives, including homelessness, mental health issues, unemployment and drug and alcohol abuse.
Our vision is to create a platform for a positive future by providing a means for social connection, improved health and wellbeing and access to support services. Established in 2008 with five players, the Collingwood Knights has since provided over 200 participants with an opportunity to improve their social, physical and mental health outcomes.
The club’s motto ‘more than just footy’ encapsulates the value and holistic nature of the program.
