  • To physically and mentally enrich the lives of users through parkour
  • To offer development opportunities and coaching
  • To promote the Charity within the Mental Health community
  • To ensure a duty of care to all members of the club

 

History

 

Free Your Instinct started in 2015. The Charity was founded by Charlotte Blake, a former exercise specialist for NHS Mental Health Services, Charley Hobson-Merrett, a former NHS accountant and Jacob Peregrine-Wheller, a ParkourUK qualified coach with a background working with participants with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

 

Since 2015 Free Your Instinct has established itself as a pioneer of using Parkour to help people with mental health support needs and operates in London, Somerset and Bristol with plans to expand into further areas.
