Special Olympics – WGPA are proud partners of Special Olympics in Ireland. Like our players, the Special Olympic athletes have a presence in communities right across the country. We have been working with them since the summer of 2015 and have supported fundraising events including the annual bucket collection day and their unique polar plunge. We have also supported their competitions and award ceremonies with various players attending regional and national events throughout the year.
Jigsaw – We work with youth mental health agency Jigsaw on promoting positive messages to young people in our communities. Our players have supported Jigsaw through various fundraising events including their annual Croke Park abseil, as well as featuring in our joint BeYou:Belong campaign to raise awareness of positive self esteem and belonging, particularly among young girls. There are Jigsaw centres across Ireland working to support our young people and change how Ireland thinks about mental health.
