We believe that every young person should be able to enjoy the benefits of good health and wellbeing.

We recognise the importance of good health and wellbeing in young people, both physically and emotionally and that the emotional wellbeing of young people is as important as their physical health. Having good health and wellbeing gives young people the confidence and ability to overcome and cope with barriers they may face in life. 

Our youth workers offer a range of support and activities for young people around health and wellbeing. Programmes and activities that we have on offer include:

  • One to one Support and Advice
  • C-Card Scheme
  • Sports and Fitness
  • Mountain Biking
  • Climbing Sessions
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Bizibodis Volunteering Project


Bizibodis is a volunteering project where young people deliver opportunities to play and improve their general wellbeing for children in the East End of Newcastle as part of the National Change4life campaign.
