Love of the Game Founder & Chair Laurence Geller was recently invited to take part in an important Parliamentary roundtable on concussion in sports.
Hosted by Chris Bryant MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Acquired Brain Injuries, the session brought together leading industry stakeholders and parliamentarians to coordinate research, policy, and guidelines.
Laurence, attending as the Government’s Independent Ministerial Adviser on Concussion and LOTG Chairman provided the session with valuable insight into the work of DCMS and the industry in creating a new framework to safeguard players and sports.
This roundtable represents an important step in the coordination of policy and legislation, and the latest developments and findings of the sports field’s cutting edge.
A further session has already been scheduled for early 2023 following the success of this opening event.
Laurence Geller said:
“I was delighted to be able to attend this important session, and to share the learnings and findings of our work with those at the centre of this policy field. I look forward to continuing to represent Love of the Game on this stage, and furthering the cause of protecting our players, and our grassroots sports”
