Leave a Legacy
With a gift in your will to Switch the Play Foundation, no matter what size, you can do so much to make sure athletes have the support they need for years to come.
Why support us?
Switch the Play is the only UK charity which exists to support athletes across all sports to make the transition to life after sport. Leaving a sport and a life that athletes have sacrificed so much for, often from childhood, can be extremely tough – mentally, emotionally and financially.
We are a nation of sports fans. According to the 2021 census, millions of us across the UK watch live sporting events every week. It is sports people who make the moments that inspire us, create the drama, bring us together and lift the nation.
We believe that medal success, winning trophies and our enjoyment of sport as fans, as sponsors and those working in sport, should not come at the expense of the wellbeing of sportspeople. We believe that wellbeing and winning go hand in hand.
We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our donors and supporters, without whom we would not be able to continue delivering our vital services.
Together we have the opportunity to help all sportspeople to thrive both through sport and beyond. By supporting Switch the Play Foundation, you can be part of the story of sporting success.
Where does the money go?
As a small charity, with limited resources, we can assure you that any financial contribution you make to Switch the Play Foundation will be put to excellent use transforming the lives of sportspeople. We are a remote working organisation, with no building overheads and limited spend on marketing. Therefore every penny donated goes into the costs of delivering our work to support athletes.
