The Frank Bruno Foundation

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, humour and humility.

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 is best focussed.

Frank has spoken openly of how exercise has played a vital role throughout his life whilst training as a professional boxer, and more recently in his battle with mental health challenges. Through his recent autobiography Frank has found the benefits of talking and sharing his experiences has not only enabled him to help others but the public responses have empowered him to accept his own previous mental health challenges.
