Foundation 92 is proud to be providing young people and families with an exclusive opportunity to take part in over 40 hours’ worth of free physical activity, team building and health improvement activities each week, supported by seven local housing associations.
Throughout summer 2020, Foundation 92 and its partners aim to provide over 700 Salford residents with the opportunity to participate in free-to-access community activity, led by Foundation 92’s team of fully qualified coaches.
Thanks to the support of Clarion Futures, Great Places, Irwell Valley, Mosscare St. Vincent’s, Onward Homes, Pendleton Together and Salix Homes housing associations, sessions will be delivered across the next six weeks at various locations in Salford. More information is available on Twitter.
Children as young as seven will be provided the opportunity to take part in fun, free and safe sport and games, in compliance with government social-distancing measures, as well as the opportunity to receive a free meal pack thanks to the support of Clarion Futures.
Families will also be offered the opportunity to take part in a free weekly health and activity session which will be based at Emmaus’ Lucie’s Pantry on Salford Precinct every Wednesday. Those who attend this activity will be provided with a free healthy eating pack, allowing them to continue to lead healthy lifestyles outside of the programme.
Head of Foundation 92, Tom Hutton, said:
“Foundation 92 is delighted to be collaborating with seven of Salford’s most forward-thinking, respected and caring housing associations.
“The whole country has faced testing and challenging times associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this both Foundation 92 and our partner housing associations remain committed to improving the lives of people in Salford and I would urge as many residents as possible to get involved.”
A spokesperson for the Housing Association Partnership added:
“Salford is a unique City where many Housing Associations support customers in a shared area, and where possible work together in partnership to support Salford to thrive.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has had a detrimental impact on the health and wellbeing of many Housing Association residents. In order to counter this, we are delighted to be working in partnership with and supporting Foundation 92 in the delivery of sports activities and health improvement and wellbeing workshops that are free to access.
“We truly hope and believe these sessions will support both our customers and the whole Salford community to not only improve their lifestyle but provide a platform for them to thrive during what remains of this difficult period and beyond.”
