We are committed to giving something back

Our People

We are an independent and trusted charity passionate about delivering a duty of care within and outside of sport.

Switch the Play was founded by a unique mix of sportsmen and women, experienced practitioners, academics and business professionals. We understand what it feels like when a career ends, and we know what is needed to help you discover a new and rewarding path.

We know that, while there are some excellent practices and approaches in the industry, there is still much to be done to support sportspeople, as is evidenced in the Duty of Care in Sport review.

Our healthy mix of athletes, coaches, managers, support staff and professionals from Higher and Further Education means everything we do is based on a wide range of perspectives which ensures we are delivering the right solution – this forms our 'prac-ademic' approach.
