Support for UCCL managers and players

28/05/20

It's been a number of weeks since lockdown as a result of the Corona Virus and these are tough and strange times that we’re living in right now......

On Thursday 28th May at 8:05pm on BBC One, there is a programme on supporting your mental health in a football environment, or if you’re a football person. In it Prince William is talking with quite a few Premier League stars. If you’re struggling at all, or know someone who is (especially during this pandemic), please watch. It could do a lot of practical help.

As always, if you’re struggling with anything mental, physical or spiritual please contact someone from the committee or your team manager. We’re all here to help. The UCCL has also put together a list below of some organisations, local and national, who can provide a broad range of support services for anything you may need. Please do take a look at each, and if there are any organisations you think would be helpful to others please let us know and we'll add them:
