Member Wellbeing

Our club is proud to have two volunteer Wellbeing Officers. Their role is to assist members of our club community who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis, until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence based action plan.

Our Wellbeing officers have received Mental Health First Aid Training which is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of young people with lived experience of mental health problems and Mental Health professionals.
