The Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Trust, Hartlepool Borough Council and Hartlepool Sport have funded a sport wellbeing project. This allows clubs and providers to access a whole host of free training courses, workshops and resources to ensure they are 'Trauma Informed' and are best placed to support their coaches, staff and volunteers, parents and players as we come out of the pandemic. A local blogger recently attended one of our specially designed Well-being First Responder workshops and wrote all about it. The workshop was delivered by Let's Connect CEO Iain Caldwell and safeguarding expert Ronnie Bage. "30 years ago there was no such thing as mental health... or depression"
Take a look at the blog post in full here:
Ronnie Bage also dropped by some Easter Holiday Activity during the school holidays, seen above at Hartlepool Wadokai's Easter camp.
"Ronnie was absolutely brilliant with the kids! - he made a well-being talk so fun, interactive and engaging for all ages" - Lynne, Chief Instructor
A whole host of well-being resources and training is available completely free of charge to clubs and providers, and all can be tailored to fit groups. Sessions can be delivered exclusively to clubs, or alongside other clubs too.
We have some upcoming courses that you can sign up for:
