Charity of the Year
Nottinghamshire FA is proud to announce our 2018/2019 Charity of the Year ‘Nottinghamshire Mind’.
We will be working specifically with Nottinghamshire Mind to ensure all funds raised benefit the local Nottingham community.
Nottinghamshire Mind work with people affected by mental health issues delivering a range of services including information and training services, one to one support, peer support, self-help and volunteer development.
Alongside raising funds for the charity we are hoping the partnership will help raise awareness within our football community ensuring people within the game know where to turn to if they are ever in need of support.
Nottinghamshire FA will be holding a number of events throughout the season to raise both awareness and money for Nottinghamshire Mind. This is where you as a member of the Coaches Club come in, at each CPD event held across the season, there will be the chance to donate money towards the charity. We will also be hosting Coaches Club specific fundraisers which will be a chance for everyone to get involved, have some fun and raise money for a good cause. Further updates will be announced soon!
Mind are delivering a ‘Mental Health Awareness’ workshop in November which is a chance for coaches to learn more about mental health, how to spot the signs and where to go for help. More details will soon be released on this to allow you to book onto the workshop.
If anyone is running an event to raise money for Nottinghamshire Mind, please let us know and we will help you to promote this!
