Fight To Thrive is a project aimed at individuals and family groups to give support to those in need. Our Fight to Thrive programme provides our communities with ‘support from next door’ rather than ‘advice from on high’. Using our 4 pillars of success we will offer six individual and interactive mental health support sessions combined with a bespoke programme of well-being, nutrition and boxing. From advice to goal setting and support from our health & wellbeing team, we seek to empower individuals to make positive lifestyle changes and embed healthy choices that will positively impact their futures.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our project not only benefits the individuals or families to gain knowledge & skills to lead happier & healthier lives, it also impacts communities as a whole. By transforming individuals relationships with themselves, this impacts the wider community. Cooking & nutrition workshops teach vital skills & give greater knowledge & understanding about the importance of eating well. The long term impacts of this are a reduction in obesity, diabetes & long term health conditions. Nutrition also plays a huge part in a persons mental well-being. Having the knowledge to not only recognise our own mental health & the health of those around you allows us to adapt, manage & cope with the challenges we all face effectively; reducing any negative impact it can have on an individual, families relationships & connection in the community. Access to a variety of exercise programmes whatever your age or ability not only changes your body it changes your mood, attitude and mind for the better.
Steps to get it done:
The cooking and nutrition workshops will be educating individuals and families about physical and mental health, with a focus on plant based eating. Plant based eating positively impacts the environment as it reduces our carbon footprint, mitigates climate control and improves health.
