WoSFL unveil Time to Tackle as Strathclyde Demolition Cup Charity Partner

The WoSFL Management Committee are delighted to announce that Time to Tackle will be our Charity Partner for the Strathclyde Demolition Cup for Season 2021/22.

Mental health issues are becoming increasingly more common and sadly suicide is a leading cause of death in Scotland among people aged 15-34 years. In 2018, suicide accounted for 28% of all male deaths in this age group. This statistic is shocking and we want to highlight the help that is available out there for people struggling with their own mental health. Time to Tackle co-founder Aaron Connolly is a player in the West of Scotland Football League, and the way the team use football and fitness as therapy made this partnership seem like a logical step as we look to help fight poor mental health.

Time to Tackle was founded in October 2019 by Aaron and his wife Siobhán Connolly following Aaron’s long running battle with poor mental health.  After struggling to find support Aaron and Siobhán decided to use their own lived experiences to create a group that would not only benefit them on a personal level but also give hope and support to others.

While considering the many aspects of mental health, Time to Tackle aim to provide the support to do the following;

  • Improve physical and mental health
  • Challenge stigma surrounding mental health
  • Promote open and honest conversations
  • Provide a safe non-judgemental environment
  • Create peer support networks to combat loneliness

Their award-winning Football Therapy program promises to help you smile again, enjoy exercising and create friendships, details of how to get in touch with the team are on their website

As part of the Partnership we will promote Time to Tackle on our social media channels as well as help them raise funds at Strathclyde Demolition Cup matches and work closely with Aaron and the team going forward with mental health campaigns throughout the course of the season.
