The People's Place

We aim to build and run a facility in the shadows of Goodison Park to promote positive mental health and provide support related to suicide awareness and prevention.

Charity Registration No. 1099366

Story

‘The Speed Cycle’, a 230 mile cycling challenge completed over 2 days in memory of former Blues midfielder Gary Speed that will raise vital funds for the charity’s mental health focused campaign, The Peoples Place.

Starting at Newcastle United’s St James’ Park, the cycle challenge will travel to Leeds’ Elland Road, Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane and Bolton’s University of Bolton stadium before making its way to Goodison Park. 

The People's Place aims to lift the lid on the taboo subject of mental health and encourage people to talk more freely and openly when they are experiencing problems. Promoting positive mental health and encouraging conversations about mental health will help improve the health of individuals. This is important as improved mental health is associated with a range of better outcomes for people of all ages and backgrounds including improved physical health and life expectancy, better educational achievement, increased skills, reduced health risk behaviours, reduced risk of mental health problems and suicide and higher levels of social interaction and participation.
