CHILDRENS MENTAL HEALTH WEEK 2024
'My Voice Matters' is about empowering children and young people by providing them with the tools they need to express themselves.
When we feel empowered, this can have a positive impact on our wellbeing. Children and young people who feel that their voices are heard and can make a difference, have a greater sense of community and self-esteem. This year, Place2Be want children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be empowered to work together to create a positive change for their mental health and wellbeing.
Sponsored by Strakers, Ron, our Safeguarding mascot, reminds young people to shoot for their goals, shout about their concerns and share their thoughts, making sure children know their voice matters and there are people at Wiltshire FA and at their football clubs that they can trust to listen.
If you need to talk, you can talk to us.

At Wiltshire FA, we believe in the power of young people to help make a difference in football and drive positive change.
We are committed to giving young people across Wiltshire a voice, providing a platform for their voices to be heard, to share their ideas, gain experience and work with other like-minded young people to help shape the future of their game.
Young people aged 14-24 can join our 'Your Future' Programme, hosted by Wiltshire FA Youth Council, for a series of events for the next generation of coaches, referees, volunteers and football administrators.
About Children's Mental Health Week
Place2Be launched the first-ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 to shine a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. Now in its tenth year, they hope to encourage more people than ever to get involved, spread the word, and raise vital funds for children’s mental health.
Every year, Place2Be’s expert team develops resources to help people participate in the week. From activity ideas and assembly guides to top tips and videos, their free resources will help you explore mental health and wellbeing with the children and young people around you.
