We have recently teamed up with a local Fitness Center - Good Vibrations. This partnership has been developed through a 'need' and a 'want' from the young people we have been working with. We have designed a programme and workshop that will focus on the importance of looking after your Physical and Mental Health. This will be co delivered along side our existing workshops so that we can give a full 360 approach to improving overall health and well being & therefore improve education and employment.
The course will also cover...
