2024 Self Care Diary Amazon

As an all female football club, our understanding of human emotions and the need for self-care is extensive, and we can’t emphasize enough how vital a sound state of mental and physical health is to attain and maintain holistic wellbeing. The intersection between lifestyle choices, mental health, and physical health is significant, and taking control of your well-being can go a long way in enhancing your quality of life.

Participating in youth sports is an excellent way for girls to develop physical and social skills, build self-esteem, and learn valuable life lessons. However, it's no secret that many girls still face significant gender barriers and stereotypes when it comes to sports participation. 

This is where social media comes in - a powerful tool that can help girls overcome these challenges and achieve success on and off the field.


In this blog post, we'll explore how social media can be used to support and empower girls in youth sports, from providing access to role models and networking opportunities to promoting positive body image and breaking down gender stereotypes. 

Let's dive in and discover how social media can make a difference in the lives of young female athletes.

About the Foundation

The 8:56 Foundation was set up in memory of Lee Calton. Lee was a massive football fan and would catch the 08:56 train out of King’s Lynn station on a Saturday morning with his friends.

The Foundation's Aim

The 8:56 Foundation aims to raise awareness, increase the profile of support and reduce the stigma associated with mental health. By using sport as an aid, we want to encourage men to talk, and reduce the risk of loneliness and isolation.

About Family Toolbox

Over the last few years, a number of agencies offering support to families in Wirral have been listening to parents and carers to understand the kinds of challenges you’re up against – and lots of it came down to not being able to find the right resources or support at the right time.

Family Toolbox is Wirral’s response. Launched in April 2022, it is available to all Wirral’s parents and carers. It aims to make resources and support more readily available, putting the power right in the hands of families to work out what you want to change, and what steps you want to take to do that.

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. It’s about how we think, feel and act. Sometimes we feel well, and sometimes we don’t.

When our mental health is good, we feel motivated and able to take on challenges and new experiences. But when our mental health is not so good, we can find it much harder to cope.
