The Foundation

The LooseHeadz Foundation is the cornerstone of our campaign to #TackleTheStigma.

We guarantee that 100% of the money raised for our Foundation will be used exclusively for the betterment of players’ mental wellbeing.

Currently the Foundation is funded through the sales of clothing, donations and fundraisers.

The Foundation is run by a board of trustees, and headed up by our patron Shaun Edwards, to ensure total visibility in everything we do. Our trustees then decide where to distribute the money raised, and report back to the team on the impact of their campaigns.

We are immensely proud to have Shaun Edwards as the Patron of the LooseHeadz Foundation. Shaun, a legend of both codes of rugby needs no introduction. His help, support and association allow us to further help the silent majority affected by mental health.

The Foundation operates entirely separately to LooseHeadz to ensure that all funds received are appropriately distributed.

Initiatives

Wellbeing Through Sport

The cornerstone of the Foundation’s work is currently the Wellbeing Through Sport programme designed by our partners Team Mental Health. The programme is designed to nurture the positive mental health and wellbeing of children through physical activities.

The Partnership Programme

We believe that local rugby clubs are the cornerstone of our campaign to improve players' mental wellbeing. From encouraging physical activity to providing a safe space for players to open up, we want to help support these clubs in any way we can.

Social Rugby

A new initiative for LooseHeadz, our Social Rugby campaign is designed to get men over 50 back playing rugby. Perhaps more importantly however will be the social side of the initiative as we seek to get those involved sharing a pint and having a chat.

More information coming soon.

Text Service

The final project we are aiming to launch by the end of the year will be a new text service. Users will be able to anonymously message professionally trained councillors, whether it be to help deal with loneliness, or to seek anonymous support and guidance should they need it.

More information coming soon.
