Find out how the club's foundation are working for the wellbeing of secondary schoolchildren

The emotional wellbeing of young people from south London is being improved with the help of the Chelsea Champions project.

The programme, run by the Chelsea Foundation and funded by the Premier League, places full-time staff in secondary schools to deliver targeted and varied sessions which increase physical activity and the resilience of the students.

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud and goalkeeper Rob Green saw the programme in action at a session at Stamford Bridge, which tackled social media and social isolation and the impact it can have on mental health.

"You have to live with social media in this modern day with phones, internet everywhere and it is important to discuss how this can have both negative and positive impacts," Giroud said.

"It was interesting and important to discuss with teenagers how they can improve how they use it and the impact it has on your life day to day."
