This survey is now closed as of 18th April 2021. We are now collating the results to develop a package that will be most useful to our athletes.

With that in mind we will be in contact via email, social media and updates will appear here to explain how athletes can access the further support.

Thank you to those you completed the survey and took the opportunity to have your say!

The Switch the Play Foundation is the UK’s only charity dedicated to supporting all sportspeople to successfully transition into life outside of sport.

Their mission is to improve the transition of thousands of athletes across all sports through training and development, influencing policy and working collaboratively with those who have a duty of care in sport.

Leaving a life in sport can be really tough. Not all sportspeople win gold medals, international caps nor million-pound contracts and when their sporting careers come to an end most will need to start a second career. The evidence shows that for some, this transition can also lead to a loss of identity, a lack of purpose and financial and mental health struggles.

They aim to make athlete transition a positive experience. Preparing sportspeople for that switch will help them fulfil their potential through and outside of sport.
