Foundation joins forces with Leeds Rhinos Netball for Offload initiative

As part of our mental health programme, Offload, we are working with the Leeds Rhinos Netball team to deliver 6 hourly sessions on mental fitness, positive mindsets, resilience and mindfulness.

The offer comes as part of our new funding and initiative for both men and women.

Leeds Community Foundation, the funders of this initiative, have a history of supporting our programmes. Collaborating with Rugby League Cares and their clinical support, along with experienced facilitators, enhances the overall effectiveness of the programme.

Sam Horner, Community and RL Development Officer, who manages the Offload Programme, commented: “This is the start of the fourth year of working on the Offload programme and its benefits are very much seen in individuals from all types of groups we have worked with.

“We are very pleased to be working with Leeds Rhinos Netball team and are looking forward to seeing how the programme can benefit them.”

Leeds Rhinos Netball Head Coach, Liana Leota, added: “The players are already benefiting from these sessions, with each player actively engaging.”

The free 6-week mental fitness and wellbeing programme is also available to members of the community, giving them the chance to take part in engaging sessions which tackle issues such as depression and anxiety.
