Library shares tips and guidance from experts, players and clubs to help supporters maintain their health during the COVID-19 pandemic

Life during the coronavirus pandemic can be difficult. So, to support football fans during these difficult times, the Premier League has developed resources to promote positive mental wellbeing.

The Premier League’s #StayWell hub provides fans with a library of expert advice on how to look after their mental health.

It shares tips and guidance from experts, the clubs and players as well as from the NHS and national organisations working in these areas to help supporters stay strong and positive.

And the hub will continue to develop, offering fans expert guidance in other areas to help maintain their health in these challenging times.

Support for NHS workers

The hub accompanies the work the Premier League and its clubs are providing to support the mental health of NHS frontline workers and their families, as well as for broader mental-health charities and the most vulnerable in our communities.

Funding for this work will come from the £20million that the League has committed for on-the-ground delivery to support the NHS, communities, families and vulnerable groups.

Ellie Orton, the Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together, has said this support will be vital.

"In the longer term, this donation will fund programmes to help staff and families recover fully once the crisis has abated, reducing the lasting impact on them and the people they care about," Orton said. "That's why I am hugely thankful to the Premier League for the donation."

This funding will be distributed via the BBC Big Night In, a joint initiative between Comic Relief and BBC Children In Need.
