Ryan Charles

Born in Nelson, New Zealand, Ryan Charles and his family relocated to the Sunshine Coast in 2015.

After working in the fitness industry for most of his early life, Charles was fortunate to gain employment with the New Zealand Rugby League in the game development team based in the Tasman area of the South Island.

It was during this time that Charles realised how sport can provide a powerful vehicle towards positive change and community involvement.

In his early 20s, Charles was diagnosed with depression and credits this time as one of the best things to have happened in his life.

Through this experience, he was able to find the support services he needed and he was able to implement the right tools into his life. This journey is a key part in what motivates Charles each day in his role with the QRL.

After moving to the Sunshine Coast, Charles was again fortunate to gain employment within the game, firstly with the NRL as a game development officer. He has now transitioned into the QRL wellbeing team as the wellbeing operations manager for Central Queensland.

Charles is extremely passionate about supporting all rugby league communities throughout Central Queensland by providing education and creating awareness on all wellbeing topics.
