SSF Families is a health and wellbeing programme promoting the importance of physical activity, designed to reach vulnerable families. The programme is targeted at young people that struggle with weight, confidence, and activity levels. We aim to address food poverty (food packs provided), family engagement, increasing physical activity, healthy food choice education, behaviour modification, emotional wellbeing, and social isolation.
On Monday 29th August we relaunched our SSF Families session at Cranhill Development Trust, with 6 families returning to the programme. During the session families took part in a variety of ice breakers and fun activities to make the families feel more relaxed, as well discussing what we wanted to learn throughout the SSF Families programme.
The families had many great ideas such as learning about nutrition, mental health, cooking, sign language and much more! By the end of the session both the young people and their parents/guardians were feeling enthusiastic and excited to see what they would learn in the coming weeks.
The session will run every Monday and Friday night at Cranhill Development Trust, Glasgow, which runs alongside our additional two sessions in Dalmarnock, Glasgow on a Tuesday and Thursday. The SSF staff are looking forward to supporting our current families, as well as welcoming new families on to the programme.
