Saints RLFC and Saints Community Development Foundation achieve listening club status.
Steve Leonard the Foundations Director stated:
“ This is a massive statement from the club and also shows our 100% backing of the RFL’s Safeguarding team and the Listening Club initiative”
“ We are making everyone aware that they have a voice within our club. We will listen to what they say and act upon anything that we believe can improve what we do to ensure everyone’s experience of St Helens RFC is as positive as it can be”
“We run mental health programmes in our schools where we promote the need for people to speak out and tell someone. So it is very important that we have in place ourselves a clear avenue for our young players to speak out and feel unrestricted in doing so”
“Our Club Chaplain Paul Johnson runs the programme alongside Player Welfare officer Neil Kilshaw and going off last season’s successes they have done a wonderful job. We have committed again to running the programme in the 2019 season and will be promoting the initiative to all our Community Clubs in the area to take part. We for sure have found it invaluable and can proudly say we are a club that listens.”
