Lidl One Good Club™, in association with the LGFA and Jigsaw, is a new initiative offering selected clubs the opportunity to support all members to engage in activities that can promote better mental health and well-being.
In addition, the programme is designed to provide your wider community with opportunities to engage with positive messages promoting better mental health and enabling them to continue to support young people in the community.
Nominations are welcome from all clubs, 1 Club from each county will be selected for participation in the programme.
The One Good Club™ programme will see your club encouraged and supported to undertake a series of mental health and wellbeing activities in line with the 5-a-Day for your mental health concept.
Each week your members and members of your local community will undertake activities ranging from Coffee Mornings, to well-being Talks and Workshops, to Meditation, Art Therapy, Community Activities and so much more. The options are endless and are yours to choose from.
Selected LGFA clubs participating in One Good Club™, will be invited to a one day training session where leaders from Jigsaw and the LGFA will introduce the programme, explain how nominations work, outline the programme approach and benefits and explain how your club will be helped with implementation.
Lidl have created a website with resources, guidance, key contacts and all the information required to help selected clubs on the journey to being One Good Club™. Participating clubs will be issued with a ‘PIN’ number to share with club members so that they can access all these resources and get started.
Once you've completed each of the 5-stages, simply share the details of each stage through social media to promote mental health awareness, and update your progress in the online system. All participating clubs will receive kit and jerseys for their club. Accredited clubs will receive a plaque for their club confirming their successful completion. They will also be considered for three awards - Most Innovative Initiative (prize €2,500), Most Community Involvement (prize €2,500) and Best Overall Engagement (prize €5,000)
Anyone can nominate their local Club. Simply complete the nomination form on this page, confirm that you have read and accept the terms and conditions, and click submit.
Shortlisted clubs will be contacted via club secretary by the 25th of February and asked to confirm participation.
If your club is selected, they will be invited to attend the official training day in Croke Park. At this training day they will receive a pack with full programme resources, including a PIN access code for the website and all relevant contact information for the appropriate support team in the LGFA, Jigsaw, and Lidl Ireland.
