Health and Wellbeing
Our Healthy Conversations Programme empowered young people and up-skilled Foyer staff to improve their overall health through developing eating and exercise plans, improving cooking skills, setting health goals and connecting with local health services.
Young people told us that they had lost weight on the programme, improved family relationships, secured employment and felt an increase in their confidence. See Kate’s final blog about Healthy Conversions here.
In partnership with The SITA Trust, we have been working with local community groups by running leadership programmes and administering small capital grants to upgrade community assets. So far, we have supported 26 separate projects across the UK such as this from Dudley Foyer, where a disused basement was transformed into a brand new common room for young people. Have a look at the transformation of Dudley Foyer’s basement here.
