Mental health leads at rugby clubs across the UK will receive free mobile connectivity, keeping them connected to club members when they need it most.
- Through its everyone.connected initiative, Vodafone will provide free connectivity to LooseHeadz mental health leads at clubs across the UK, so they can stay connected to club members when they need it most on Vodafone’s reliable, award-winning network*.
- everyone.connected aims to address the unequal access to the connectivity, digital skills, and technologies needed to participate in an increasingly digital society, and includes initiatives focussed on increasing the digital capacity of charities across the UK.
- Mental health leads, or ‘LooseHeadz’, are an assigned point of contact for mental health matters, creating a safe environment for everyone, from players to coaches and staff, to talk openly about their mental health and provide crucial guidance on how to improve mental fitness.
- Gwen Crabb and Captain Hannah Jones, LooseHeadz Ambassadors and Wales Internationals, visited Old Penarthians RFC alongside Rob Shotton, LooseHeadz Co-Founder, to mark the launch of the new partnership.
Vodafone has announced a new partnership with LooseHeadz, rugby’s mental health charity focussed on tackling the stigma around discussing mental health and providing dedicated leads for UK clubs to support mental fitness.
As Official Connectivity Partner, Vodafone will be supporting LooseHeadz in its mission by providing every mental health lead in the UK with SIM cards and free mobile connectivity through its everyone.connected initiative, so they can stay connected to club members when they need it most on Vodafone’s reliable, award-winning network*.
To mark the launch of the new partnership, Hannah Jones and Gwen Crabb, LooseHeadz ambassadors and Welsh Internationals, delivered a training session to the women’s team at the Old Penarthians RFC. The aim of the session was to introduce LooseHeadz to the rugby club members, giving them valuable insights and education on mental health, while emphasising the importance of building a supportive club culture.
