Tru Talent are delighted to announce that they are renewing their official partnership with AFC Bournemouth for the eagerly anticipated and promising 2023/24 season.
Venturing into their third year with the club’s esteemed Community Sports Trust, the relationship continues to go from strength to strength, with the focus on sponsoring the Mental Health & Well Being project that finds its footing within primary and secondary schools throughout Dorset.
It continues to be an extremely important topic due to the rise in children’s mental health since COVID-19, with 83% of young people agreeing that the pandemic had an affect on them.
Last year, it was also revealed that 18% of children aged between 7 and 16 had a probably mental disorder, again emphasising how crucial such session are.
The sessions delivered in partnership with Tru Talent aim to explore the emotions of the pupils, while educating children about how to improve their mental health and well-being.
Last season saw us deliver 61 sessions, with excellent feedback from both teachers and pupils, who commented on how engaging they all were.
Following the renewal, Rob Mitchell, Commercial Director at AFC Bournemouth shared his delight.
“We’re thrilled to have Tru Talent on board for another season and we look forward to continuing the great work that we’ve already done together. Their support of the Mental Health & Well Being programme is so important and really benefits so many young people in the Bournemouth and Poole area.”
Toni Taylor, Managing Director, of Tru Talent also commented.
“Tru Talent are delighted to be sponsoring the AFCB Community Sports Trust mental health and wellbeing projects for another year! Being part of this project within our local community, where we’re able to educate young individuals about important challenges they my face and equip them with skills to enhance their wellbeing, is hugely important work and incredibly rewarding and we can’t wait to see the amazing work being delivered by the Community Sports team throughout the next year.”
