With the support of the Morrisons Foundation over the summer we provided a week long summer project. This program aimed to improved the children’s health and wellbeing part of the “The DAZL Healthy heARTS Project”. The Projected offered fun and accessible high quality dance and healthy eating opportunities. We engaged 40 children from Leeds 10 and surrounding areas, We also provided a healthy Breakfast and lunch courtesy of Morrisons Hunslet.

Targeting children and families in deprived areas, who lack access to activities or are at risk of sedentary lifestyles. We have a commitment to supporting local people enabling and encouraging ownership and entrepreneurship, we had 3 local parent volunteers help out and 4 youth dance leaders from the local community. We had a particular focus on looked After Children and those children who are struggling to maintain a healthy weight/ lifestyle.

 

We worked with the Wayne Sables Project to create a short film/ online resource addressing the themes of the project which is shared via our social media and our YouTube channel.  Please checkout out the impact of the project in the films below.
