Partnership Organisations

We are committed to forging cohesive and sustainable partnerships with Scottish professional football clubs, governing and professional bodies, as well as leading mental health organisations and educational institutions, to help deliver a national campaign to promote awareness on a national platform.

We believe that through effective dialogue with our key partnership organisations we can maximise impact and effectiveness through a stronger collective voice and greater influence to shape policy and transform available services to help those suffering with poor mental health.

The Chris Mitchell Foundation works closely with the following organisations:

“The Scottish Professional Football League Trust is an independent, registered charity that works in partnership with all 42 SPFL Clubs to develop community activities across Scotland. Through the power of football we aim to make a difference, empowering our clubs to create opportunities at the heart of our communities that bring people together and change lives for the better.”

“Our main area of support is pastoral and spiritual care. We help support chaplains in a variety of sporting settings such as football, rugby, golf and more.”
