Xledger UK is extremely proud to announce it has become an official partner of rugby mental health charity LooseHeadz. The partnership will help to support rugby players, coaches and supporters from around the world in looking after their mental health.
With more than 750 clubs already signed up to LooseHeadz Partnership Programme, and through the support of the team at Xledger, the ambition is to increase this number to over 1,000 clubs by the end of 2023.
Xledger will provide dedicated resources and expertise to help further LooseHeadz’s mission to place a mental health lead into every rugby club around the world and will provide them with a toolkit of free resources to support the wellbeing of players, coaches and supporters.
Several new resources for the toolkit have also been created, including the launch of a new training module aimed at supporting the mental health of 10-18-year olds, which is due to release later this year.
The partnership will see a number of initiatives launch in the coming months. These projects will look to place a heavy focus on supporting players in planning for life outside of rugby.
This partnership gives the company the opportunity to support an ambitious and growing movement, it’s a real privilege to be part of the LooseHeadz mission.
Xledger has always had a close association with sport, understanding how being involved in a team can provide a positive structure to dealing with many of the challenges that some many people deal with on a day-to-day basis.
Rob Shotton is co-founder of LooseHeadz, and commenting on the new partnership, he said, “This is a hugely exciting partnership for us. Having built up a great relationship with the team at Xledger, we are really looking forward to welcoming them into the LooseHeadz family, and together, working with them to tackle the stigma.”
“For us, the real excitement for this partnership is the passion from the people at Xledger for not only supporting the LooseHeadz mission, but to provide their own ideas as to what more we can be doing to support the wellbeing of players, coaches and supporters.”
