The Posh Academy will be working in partnership with local Mental Health and Emotional Well Being service.
Peterborough United Football Club are delighted to be working in partnership with CHUMS (Mental Health & Emotional Wellbeing Service for Children and Young people) with the organisation set to work alongside the Academy at the Mick George Training Academy.
With an Academy system that runs from under 9s through to under 16s and a whole host of other projects and programmes underway, the club felt it was an important step to enter a partnership with a service that works exclusively with young people.
Sue Clarke, Head of Fundraising and Communication at CHUMS said: “CHUMS is thrilled to be partnering with Peterborough United Football Club following the launch of our Emotional Wellbeing Service in Peterborough & Cambridgeshire. We look forward to working together and helping to promote positive mental health across the area.”
Academy manager Nick Sheppard added: “Mental health and well-being is extremely important to us as a football club and we are pleased to be working in partnership with CHUMS where we hope to raise awareness and provide support to our players within the Academy.”
