Benestar – Another evolution of our health and wellbeing commitment to ACA members.

9 October, 2020

Last month, the ACA announced that its members now have access to a free holistic and comprehensive health and wellbeing program through a new partnership with Benestar®.

Best You by Benestar offers professional, confidential coaching and support, and is free for ACA Members and their eligible family members.

The ACA will fund up to six hours of confidential wellbeing counselling to members and their significant others through the program.

ACA General Manager of Member Programs & Relations Kelly Applebee said that cricket has come a long way in recognising and acknowledging the importance of having good Mental Health.

“The ACA is committed to evolving and enhancing the services they offer for ACA members, especially in this vital space – so we are thrilled to be able to offer Benestar’s comprehensive health and wellbeing program to our members,” she said.

Creating a space which makes those around us feel safe to have a conversation about well-being is important to us in cricket.

“This program will mean that all ACA members have access to a range of support mechanisms, to help face challenging situations, or to enhance their overall wellbeing.

“And in a tough year for all people across Australia, this service could not have come at a better time for our members.”

Best You by Benestar offers professional, confidential coaching and support, which is also available free to eligible family members.
