STAFF from both Burton Albion Football Club and Burton Albion Community Trust have completed a one-day mental health training workshop.

The training, delivered by The Manchester College, was organised through the partnership between Burton Albion and the Professional Footballer’s Association.

The aim of the training was to make sure that staff are continuing to broaden their knowledge and skills to improve the mental health of themselves and those around them, as well as looking out for signs that can prevent further actions in their employees and colleagues. 

Fleur Robinson, Commercial Director, said: "It’s imperative that our employees know that we care and are there for them if needed.

"It’s also essential to know that we are doing all that we can to train and educate our staff on something as important as mental health. It’s something that we take very seriously and will continue to work on in the near future." 

Matt Hancock, Head of Community, said: "We’re really grateful to The Manchester College and the PFA for putting on training like this.

"It really helps to educate and inspire our staff that are out in the community on a daily basis and we hope that it can have a massive impact on the people that they come into contact with."
