So here we are, at the end of another year!

We were delighted to spend time with some of our members at the recent National SEM Training Day at Wembley and the MedEduCare meeting on ‘Transgender Athletes in Female Sport’ and ‘When Culture in Sport Goes Wrong’ at the RSM.

Both days were incredibly informative, and the discussions at the RSM were bold and hard-hitting – thank you to everyone involved for having us there with you.  As always, it was a pleasure to catch up in person, and we look forward to more of this in 2023.

At the time of writing, we’re looking forward to an exciting World Cup match between England and France in Qatar – is it too much to hope we might be looking at a trophy coming home for Christmas?🤞
