Our Muirhouse group have recently started an 8 week health and wellbeing programme. The Health 4 U programme, developed by the NHS and Edinburgh Leisure, aims to provide young people with the tools, information and support they need to make long-term positive changes to their lifestyle. We have worked alongside Laura from Edinburgh Leisure to develop the programme specifically for our young parents. We hope this will support them to make positive changes to their lifestyle and also that of their children’s.
Throughout the programme we will focus on the four different aspects of health – physical, social, emotional and mental health. Alongside the learning each workshop also includes a new physical activity to take part in. Our first session just took place and involved power hooping, pictures below! It was great fun and not as hard as we first thought. The group are looking forward to finding out what’s in store for them next session!
