SALT began in 2015 after founder, Dave Burt attended 7 clubs over a period of 18 months to help them recover and restore their communities due to the impact of suicide. In every club, Dave heard the same thing, ‘We never saw it coming’.
Recognising the remarkable strengths sports people displayed on the field – courage, sacrifice, commitment, good decision making under pressure, strong communication and more, Dave resolved to create positive, interactive education programs that would drive clubs to become as strong off the field as they were on it.
The SALT Club Re-Connect Program is an interactive, online presentation that digs deep into how your club community is traveling right now and equips you to support one another into the future. Through a newly developed and highly informative live quiz, the SALT presenter will establish what the main issues are for each group and will flexibly respond, teach, and connect.
SALT are proud to have pledged their support as part of The National Communications Charter to commit to reducing stigmatising language and promoting help-seeking and help-offering behaviour.
SALT is a not-for-profit health promotion organisation with full DGR Status. All donations are fully tax deductable.
Many organisations and companies have generously sponsored local clubs to have complimentary SALT presentations.
