Charter Signatory List

The Sport and Recreation Alliance, alongside the Professional Players Federation (PPF) and with support from the mental health charity Mind, launched the Mental Health Charter for Sport and Recreation in March 2015.

Since then we've been encouraging other organisations within the sector to show their support and sign-up to the Charter. The response has been phenomenal with over 300 organisations now being signed-up to the Charter in total.
