I am passionate about helping sport become a tool for children and young people to use for their mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as physical health. I want every child and young person to experience the benefits that sport brings. That is why I am so proud to be an Ambassador for the incredible work that the Youth Sport Trust does for children and young people, and why I am getting my trainers on, so I can pass their message on & support their invaluable work.

What's Radha working on? 

Dr Radha is supporting the Well Schools movement galvanised by the YST by sharing her expertise and being a role model for change. The Well Schools movement supports schools to drive improvements in wellbeing for all teachers, senior leaders and young people by placing wellbeing at the very heart of schools. It isn’t a programme, quality mark or intervention, it’s all of us coming together to drive change, share challenges and solutions and help us navigate all of the support that is already available.
