News! The Feel Good Factor

The main part of The Feel Good Factor is six intervention programmes delivered in the Bolsover and North East Derbyshire localities. Each programme is slightly different but they all promote one or more principles of healthy lifestyle i.e. healthy eating, physical activity and emotional wellbeing. All contribute to helping young people feel good about themselves.

Each group programme will run across seven weeks (excluding half term) with up to twelve young people aged between 11-17 years. There will be two professionals supporting each group, at least one of whom will be from the Children and Young People's Health Promotion Team. Each one and a half or two hour session will involve activities where the young people can learn about looking after themselves and ways in which they can continue to do this outside of the group.

Three group programmes will run this new year starting the week beginning 26/01/15 located in Pinxton, Eckington and Clowne.

  • 26 January to 16 March 2015, 18.00 - 19.30, Pinxton Youth Centre
  • 28 January to 18 March, 15.15 - 17.15, Eckington School
  • 29 January to 19 March, 15.00 - 17.00, Heritage High School, Clowne

Referrals can be made by MATs, School Nursing, School Staff and GPs/Practice Nurses. Deadline for referrals is 5 January 2015.
