What is GameChanger?


Who are we?

In October 2014 a seed of an idea was planted between Leeann Dempster, Chief Executive, Hibernian FC and Linda Irvine, Strategic Programme Manager Mental Health and Wellbeing, NHS Lothian, about football and health and using the assets of Hibernian FC and Hibernian Community Foundation to improve the lives and life chances of Lothian’s citizens.


These ideas culminated into the formation of GameChanger Public Social Partnership and a Management Group was formed with representation from Hibernian Football Club, NHS Lothian, Hibernian Community Foundation and Ready for Business.


Over 100 interested partners to date have signed up to be part of GameChanger and include public, private and third sector organisations.
