    Paycare are our new official shorts sponsor

    Paycare are our new official shorts sponsor

    Motherwell Football Club have another new sponsorship partner, bringing on board England-based health cash plan provider Paycare.

    The first sponsor of its kind in Scotland, Paycare are a leading not-for-profit organisation which provides cashback on everyday healthcare costs, as well as wider mental, financial and physical support.

    Paycare will become the club’s health and wellbeing partner, as well as being the official shorts sponsor, for seasons 2018/19 and 2019/20.

    As former back of shirt sponsors of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Paycare is the first English organisation to sponsor a Scottish Premiership team, and the first health cash plan provider to promote its services in Scotland.

    “After researching organisations sponsoring English teams, we came across Paycare through their sponsorship of Wolverhampton Wanderers and were immediately drawn to them,” Suzanne Reid, head of commercial and marketing at Motherwell Football Club, explained.

    “Their not-for-profit status, ethos of giving back to the communities it serves, and the very nature of what they do to help people from a health and wellbeing perspective really resonated with us. We’re very much looking forward to working with them in the months and years to come.”

    Paycare dates back to 1874 in Wolverhampton and was set up by the foremen of some of the city’s largest factories in a bid to protect their employees from crippling medical bills, and growing to become a leading provider in the UK.

    It works with families, businesses and individuals to provide cashback on services from physiotherapy, reflexology and chiropody, to optical, dental, and vaccinations, as well as wider inclusive support such as a confidential counselling and support service, GP 24/7 app, Paycare Perks – an exclusive online discount platform – and Paycare Partners, which is a dedicated signposting service.

    “We’re delighted to be sponsoring Motherwell Football Club,” added Kevin Rogers, CEO of Paycare.

    “Given their community ethos and as the Scottish Premiership’s only fully fan-owned club, as well as our drive to make a positive difference to the communities that we serve, our partnership was a natural next step with brilliant synergy.”

    As a not-for-profit, Paycare has shared over £2.2m to-date with charities, causes and initiatives UK-wide by donating every spare penny not spent on enhancing its services to policyholders – seeing its stakeholders making a positive difference to their local communities.

    We need to talk about suicide

    In just a matter of a few months, a number of young people in North Lanarkshire have taken their own lives.

    Last year, 40 people in North Lanarkshire were lost to suicide. Young men in particular are affected, with the suicide rate for males three times more than females.

    Nobody wants to talk about suicide. But we need to change that.

    If you’re reading this and feel low, we want you to know that everybody feels low sometimes. We all face difficult situations in our lives. That applies to everyone, whether they are our friends and family, supporters and even footballers.

    Suicide is not the answer. There is always another way. Help is available. You are not alone. We know it is not always easy to talk but you are contemplating this, please open up to someone.

    Our players, our manager Stephen Robinson and everyone at Motherwell Football Club are determined to play a part in preventing any more lives being lost. Everyone in our community is important to us. We want you to be able to talk and find another way.

    If you’re feeling like this, please pick up the phone. You will not be judged. People can help you see there is another option.

    Call the Samaritans on 116123, Breathing Space on 0800 838587 or Childline on 0800 1111.

    Motherwell Football Club have extended their back-of-shirt partnership with North Lanarkshire Suicide Prevention. The logo will continue to be prominently displayed on shirts and around Fir Park Stadium.

    Club extend Suicide Prevention partnership

    Club extend Suicide Prevention partnership

    Motherwell Football Club are backing efforts to tackle suicide and the dreadful consequences it can have for families and communities.

    In season 2018/19, we will continue to display the the Suicide Prevention North Lanarkshire logo on the back of our first team jerseys. Our reserve team will also follow suit.

    In partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, the club will also be displaying prominent suicide prevention messages and helpline information around Fir Park during matches.

    Almost one person every week dies by suicide in North Lanarkshire. As a club, we pledge to support Suicide Prevention North Lanarkshire to help raise awareness that help is available for those who need it.

    “We work with Motherwell FC on a number of local initiatives and this partnership is vital in helping raise awareness around this sensitive area,” council deputy leader Paul Kelly said.

    “Suicide devastates lives across Scotland every day of every week. It is vital that if people are feeling suicidal or down that they know help is available. We need to let people know it helps to talk if you are feeling worried or concerned.

    “By working together we can have a greater impact in preventing suicide.”

    Lynne MacDonald, senior social work officer with North Lanarkshire Council, added: “This partnership with Motherwell FC means we can use football as a means to reach out to more people to reduce suicide.

    “We want to make people aware that there is lots of help available if they are concerned about suicide or are worried about friends or family members.

    “By raising awareness of how to recognise the signs sometimes associated with suicide, people will be in a better position to offer support and perhaps save lives.”

    Alan Burrows, chief executive at Motherwell FC said: “Suicide has sadly impacted our club and our community on many different levels.

    “Former players, staff and their families and, most recently, friends and supporters have been affected in someway over the years.

    “We’ve always tried to raise awareness. We need to – and will – double our efforts going forward.”

    Suzanne Reid, head of commercial and marketing at Motherwell FC added: “It is important to us as a club, and a central part of this community, to continue our support for this initiative.

    “Suicide affects so many families in this area, and has had a direct impact on young supporters’ families in recent months. We want everyone to know that support is out there, and the first step towards it is to talk to someone.”
