World Wellbeing Week 2024

Posted on: 24 June 2024 by Switch the Play Foundation

This week is World Wellbeing Week. This is a worldwide initiative dedicated to raising awareness about all aspects of wellbeing including mental, physical, social and emotional health.

This week provides an opportunity for individuals, communities and organisations to reflect on the importance of overall health and happiness.

As a charity focussed on supporting athletes with their transition into life beyond sport, achieving positive wellbeing is something we work on and celebrate every day of the year at Switch the Play.

We understand that wellbeing is affected by so many different factors that may not always be discussed in the wellbeing conversation. We know through our work that as well as mental and physical health, some of the biggest impactors on wellbeing are financial security, having a daily purpose and direction and access to support when needed. 

This is why we are continually developing our offer to athletes and ensuring that we are supporting them at every stage in their wellbeing journey. We do this through a variety of programmes including our flagship Switched On programme which provides one to one mentoring and wellbeing support for athletes transitioning away from a career in sport. 

In addition, we also work with clubs and sporting organisations to provide masterclasses and courses for athletes looking at specific areas which will support their wellbeing. 

Our offering to athletes continues to expand and we have some exciting new projects in the pipeline for which will be announced in the coming months.  

We will be using World Wellbeing Week to showcase our work and will be sharing information on our social channels about the history of our charity, the work we do and the impact this has on athletes across the UK.
