Carers Trust Project

As part of our satellite club initiative, we worked with the Carers Trust Tyne & Wear to engage their young, inactive carers in physical activity. The project targeted young people with caring responsibilities for a family member with a serious illness, disability or addiction.

 Get Set To Go

The Get Set to Go programme was launched by MIND, with the support of Sport England and the National Lottery, in July 2015 to help people with mental health problems benefit from being physically active. Get Set to Go was all about helping people to get active. Over 3,500 people participated in the programme within eight local Minds located across England.

US Active Communities

A two-day yoga retreat was held for seven participants taking place at Newcastle University Sports Centre. All the participants were selected on the basis that they are currently struggling with mental health difficulties or are surrounded by circumstances that put them at risk.
