The Grace Dear Trust is a local charity that raises awareness of the impact of poor mental health, in particular the significant effect it has on young people.
The Trust aims to encourage more people to be able to speak openly about their feelings, no matter how big or small, and reduce some of the stigma which surrounds mental health problems.
At OCs, our Junior Rugby organisation is working with the Trust to raise awareness of mental health issues.
A number of our coaches have attended Mental Health Awareness courses organised by the Trust. We’re working closely with the Trust to continue to deliver training, foster open conversations, and fundraise for their important work.
