Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and Westfield Health have agreed a three-year charitable partnership. The partnership, which aims to positively impact social inequality in the City of Sheffield, will work towards transforming the mental and physical wellbeing of young people in the region.
Dame Kelly Holmes Trust puts world class athletes shoulder to shoulder with young people. Equipping them with a winning mindset and shaping their futures - it's a teammate like no other. Whether that’s building relationship skills, improving self-esteem or learning to stay focused, the Trust’s sporting champions help the next generation move forward with confidence.
By working together, we know that we can make a healthy difference to our community that lasts for generations to come.
Our CEO, Dave Capper, sat down with Dame Kelly Holmes to talk about resilience and the positive impact of a mentor, as well as why partnerships like this are so valuable.
Westfield Health have partnered with Transplant Sport since 2008, supporting the annual British Transplant Games.
The Games have run for over 40 years and are a celebration of life! They seek to raise awareness of the need for organ donation, encourage transplant recipients to lead active lifestyles, and to show appreciation for and remember donors and their families.
Taking place in different host cities every Summer, the games see teams from hospitals across the UK come together to compete in a medley of sports.
#BatonOfHopeUK is designed to be the biggest suicide awareness and prevention initiative the UK has ever seen, opening up necessary conversations, and prompting appropriate actions.
Their specially designed baton toured UK towns and cities over two weeks in June 2023, and raised the profile of this issue like never before.
Their overall aim is to reduce the stigma, get better at asking questions, listening, and directing people to the right help.
17 million days are lost a year to work-related stress, depression, or anxiety
Some organisations think mental health isn’t something you talk about in the workplace, but those 17 million days tell a different story
We are part of this growing movement and will not tolerate more than 6,000 suicide deaths per year in the UK (as currently) when most suicides are preventable. Together, through collaboration and a shared vision of a zero-suicide society, we can drive change and save lives.
Suicide is the biggest killer of our nation’s under 35’s
Giving Back for us isn’t just about monetary donations, but it’s about our culture, mission, and our vision at Westfield Health.
We’re also here to offer volunteering time, Sheffield meeting room spaces, and potential partnerships to strengthen community relationships where we can. If you are interested in partnering with Westfield Health on a good cause, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
