Feel Good Groups

Organisation : Health Opportunities Team
Grant Amount : £ 22,041
Project Dates : April 2013 to March 2015

Our Feel Good Groups encourage young people to engage in sport and physical exercise, supported by health education, to improve well-being.

We are seeking funding to continue 2 weekly groups, each for 10-15 young women/men in the Craigmillar area, and to establish a permanent group for young women in the Liberton & Gilmerton area.

The weekly session consists of 3 parts: physical activity (programme of activities planned in consultation with participants) then a healthy snack followed by a health education session which can take many different formats such as speakers, discussion group or workshop.

These sessions are planned in partnership with the group members including sexual health, alcohol/substance use, bullying and healthy eating.
