SHINING a light on Mental wellbeing

Across Somerset, we are creating a network of Wellbeing Champions within cricket clubs who encourage an open culture around mental health. The AWARE pledge is our new initiative to help clubs demonstrate the importance of equality, inclusiveness and anti-stigma around mental health.

Wellbeing Champion Role

We want individuals within cricket clubs to become Wellbeing Champions (WBC) who, with support from the club committee, promote positive mental health and wellbeing. The WBC will take the lead on promoting wellbeing throughout the Cricket Club. This will be achieved by pledging to become AWARE.

The AWARE Pledge


We would like all Wellbeing Champions to work towards the AWARE pledge. The AWARE pledge will help ensure a cricket club is on the path to becoming a welcoming and mentally healthy place to play cricket.

Wellbeing Champion Awareness Calendar

Wellbeing Champions will follow an awareness calendar that provides a theme to be followed and promoted each month. Each month, the Wellbeing Champion will have access to month descriptions and exemplar social media messages that can be modified to reflect their club then shared on club social media platforms.
