In partnership with North East Young Dads and Lads, South Tees Youth Offending Service and Public Health South Tees, HeadStart assist with the Thursday night drop in sessions that run fortnightly within The Live Well Centre.
A session that is free to access offers participants the opportunity to use the gym, take part in activities, meet new people and receive support with their emotional health.
One young dad who attends the session said ‘It’s great to be able to come here and meet other lads who are going through tricky times too, the gym helps me forget the stress’.
Despite only going for a couple of months, the session is well attended and currently looking to develop it further.
If you know anyone who you think could benefit from the session, please contact the HeadStart team.
