Wellbeing Champion Role
There is a growing appreciation of the benefits and importance of creating environments in which people can be more supported and open about their mental well-being. Tackling the stigma, prejudice and discrimination that can be associated with mental health in a sports environment is hugely important, creating a safer and more inclusive club.
We recognise the impact Covid-19 has had on the well-being of players and the Somerset Cricket Foundation is committed to supporting you, and your club, to create a culture where players can access the help required to protect and prevent them from poor mental health. To support this goal, we are inviting all cricket clubs in Somerset to nominate a Wellbeing Champion volunteer. We can provide your club volunteer with a ‘starter pack’ for them start their Wellbeing Champion journey. In addition, each Champion will receive:
- Mental Health First Aid training
- Safeguarding training
- Access to monthly peer support & networking with other Champions.
- Resources to start your journey and support across the season
