Solihull youngsters offered free activities to encourage a healthy lifestyle

Sarah Mason 8th Feb, 2022

YOUNG people in North Solihull aged 11 to 18 are to be provided with free access to physical activities to encourage a healthy lifestyle under a new initiative.

It comes after leading West Midlands mental health charity Living Well UK was awarded funding, which, by uniting with the Fitcap (Fitness in the Community and Active Play) project, will see the scheme become a reality.

Living Well UK will match fund to provide further activities and will also offer mental health first aid training and volunteering opportunities to adults in the local area.

It’s hope the programme will not only encourage a healthy lifestyle but also give young people something to focus on instead of hanging around the streets.

Walking / Running will take place on Mondays, from 11am to midday in Meriden Park, B37 5T. To register, click here.

Arts, crafts and games for 11 to 18-year-olds will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays, 3.30pm to 5.30pm at The Fordbridge Centre, B37 5DD. To register, click here.

Fitcap is a non-profit with a mission to provide children and adults with opportunities to learn, play and succeed within their communities.

As part of this project, LWUK will deliver free physical and creative activities to support young people and adults with their mental health and physical well-being. Session leaders are qualified sports leaders and art therapists.
