SUIT staff member Jason Spreckley has been honoured by the Premier League Charitable fund after his work with the Wolves Foundation on their Head 4 Health programme – an innovative men’s mental heath project.
Jasons’s work has led to him being recognised as one of the Premier League and PFA Community Fund awards winners as part of the Premier League Charitable Fund 10-year anniversary celebrations.
Jason, aged 42, struggled with addiction and mental health issues when growing up, and found it difficult to find organisations who were able to help him.
He now works for WVSC’s SUIT (Service User Involvement Team), a project which offers support across a broad range of areas to vulnerable people from the city, including around addiction and recovery, homelessness, poverty, health and wellbeing and mental health issues.
Through those contacts, when Wolves Foundation were looking for advice and guidance to set up their Head 4 Health programme focusing on helping men from the local area, Jason was understandably very keen to get involved.
Now, two years on, he is an award winner, his support as a facilitator for Head 4 Health landing him one of the Premier League and PFA Community Fund accolades as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations of the Premier League Charitable Fund.
Everyone at WVSC would like to pass on massive congratulations to Jason!
