Morrisons Foundation Support DAZL healthy heARTS project.
We are so grateful to have received support from The Morrison’s Foundation who support local charities making a positive difference in local communities across England, Scotland and Wales. DAZL has been awarded a grant for a health and wellbeing project “The DAZL Healthy heARTS Project”. The Project offers fun, relevant and accessible high quality dance and healthy eating opportunities. Targeted at disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people aged 3-25 years in Leeds 10 or close to the area of Morrison’s Hunslet store.
Working within youth culture, starting with what young people, families enjoy. Also targeting children and families in deprived areas, who lack access to activities or are at risk of sedentary lifestyles. Using a community development methodology. Starting where the children and families are at! We have a commitment to supporting local people enabling and encouraging ownership and entrepreneurship. Parental involvement is a crucial feature of the project engaging the whole family to have the greatest impact to support a healthier lifestyle.
We will deliver two, 12 week projects and a 1 week school holiday activity program for children and families. We have a particular focus on looked After Children and those children who are struggling to maintain a healthy weight/ lifestyle.
We will be working with the Wayne Sables Project to create a short film/ online resource addressing the themes of the project. Thank you so much to the Morrison’s Foundation for their support. For more information on The Morrison’s Foundation visit https://www.morrisonsfoundation.com/about-us/

How can I support DAZL?
We are always looking for help towards costs of sessions, costumes, equipment and transport etc. For the young people we work with even £5 to cover the cost of a couple of classes really can make a huge difference to their lives.
If you can help then all donations are gratefully received and we would be very happy to include you on our supporter’s page and invite you as a guest to our performances by way of a thank you.
