One of the main aims of the WGPA is to ensure the welfare of our players and to help them to maintain positive health and wellbeing in their playing and personal lives.
The WGPA, in partnership with Inspire Wellbeing provide our members with access to a 24-hour support line, 365 days of the year. Trained staff provide immediate support to players and subsequently help them consider various diagnostic, evaluation and referral options across a range of issues such as mental health, stress, relationship worries, financial concerns, legal issues and family life. Up to six free face-to-face counselling sessions in nationwide centres are also be available through this service.
Players also have access to a customized website where they can find information on a variety of topics related to health and wellbeing. All members receive the free-phone number and website link to avail of this service.
