We have launched a new campaign to raise £10,000 between now and the end of December 2020, to provide mental health support for 100 young sportspeople.
Having already helped 180 young athletes since our launch in November 2019, and contributing to the wider conversation around mental health in sport, our goal is to raise £10,000 to mark the charity’s first anniversary on 26th November 2020.
With £10,000 we will be able to:
Since launching our charity, we’ve received some incredibly positive feedback from the young sportspeople we’ve already helped:
“I really appreciate the support Sporting Minds UK provided and i’m grateful for how quickly it came through. It was really reassuring in a difficult time to know there is support out there.

If enough people support this project, we will be able to offer specialist mental health one to one support for a further 100 young people, to help get them back on track in their chosen sport. It also has the potential to make a huge positive difference to the rest of their lives (and even to save some lives), while providing UK sport with a talent pool of amazing young athletes, across all sports.
