In June and July BYC is again delivering the Go Skate Project, a programme teaching skateboarding as a pathway for better mental health and wellbeing.
The course is in conjunction with and funded by Brighton & Hove Council, and is for young people aged 11 – 16 who identify as having issues with mental health, anxiety or depression.
Young people looking to join will need to be referred to the council’s Healthy Lifestyles Team. To refer yourself or a young person, or for more information, call 01273 294589, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can get in touch with us direct and we can get the process going for you.
This will be the sixth Go Skate Project course that BYC and BHCC have put on. Our previous projects have been a great success in helping young people discover a new activity, gain confidence, challenge themselves and meet new people. Many have become regular visitors to the park since attending.
The course consists of six weekly lessons on Tuesdays from 4:15 – 5:15, starting from the 18th of June. It is free of charge for those who sign up!
