MENTAL WELLBEING PROVISION IN SPORT SURVEY
In May 2020, Healthway commissioned researchers at Monash University to undertake a review of existing initiatives operating in sports clubs, seeking to promote positive mental health and wellbeing. The aims of the research are to gain a comprehensive understanding of the work being undertaken to support positive mental health in community sports contexts across WA and determine what resources and support might need to be provided in the future to support mental health work and training across the community sport sector.
The research will assist Healthway to develop guidance and resources for sporting associations and community sports clubs to determine what types of initiatives and programs are most effective to engage with depending on current levels of knowledge. The research will provide a valuable mapping of existing support.
The researchers would like to invite you to complete a short survey overviewing the initiatives that your club or State Sporting Association are aware of, your views and opinions of these initiatives and resources and what else you believe could be done to support this area of work in the future. The survey can be completed online and should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
REGIONAL ATHLETE TRAVEL SUBSIDY SCHEME
The Regional Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme (ATSS) is an initiative supporting regional athletes who have progressed into the high performance pathway of their chosen sport and are pursuing regional, state and national representation.
Eligible regional athletes can receive funding for out-of-pocket travel and accommodation expenses directly related to competitions and programs in accordance with the performance level categories and eligibility criteria outlined in the application guidelines.
Subsidies for regional athletes are provided through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program.
The next round of the Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme (ATSS) is open between 10 August – 11 September 2020 for events held between 15 May 2020 – 15 December 2020. Applications can be submitted on the regional Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme website from Monday 10 August 2020 onwards.
LOOKING FOR A WAY TO RAISE FUNDS DURING THESE TOUGH TIME?
There's an initiative that is being undertaken by a company called Click Frenzy, who are running a sport weekend of online shopping across the country in the next 2 weeks. As part of the initiative they are also running a virtual canteen for all community clubs to help raise money that goes directly to clubs.
We all want to get back to normal life as soon as possible. Ensuring our members, their friends and families remain safe and prepared is critical to achieving this.
One of the ways we can all play our part is to get the Australian Government's COVIDSafe app. While downloading the app is entirely voluntary, it has been highly recommended by both the Australian and WA Governments to assist our health professionals and help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Equestrian WA is encouraging all members to consider downloading the app to help keep our community safer.
