Delivering the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015 is a key driver for the SEWH Framework.
Framework Membership Delivery
By Framework Members coming together and driving the five ways of working, we have been able to meet the WBFG Act through a number of initiatives:
A Healthier Wales
Street Games have held a number of Community Mental Health Sessions across Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Cardiff Councils. To date, eight courses have taken place, including 4 mental health courses, engaging over 90 learners.
- 93% are likely to recommend our training to a friend
- 95% thought the course met there expectation
- 93% said they learnt something new they can put into practise
Feedback from learners:
“I liked how interactive it was despite being virtual, that's no easy task! Also the availability of the resources to use afterwards in my own work”
"Excellent processes to support myself and the young people I work with”
SEWH had funded for Street Games to undertake Contractor Mental Health Webinars through February and March 21. These were well received by the Contractors and led to further sessions being arranged by the Contractors themselves.
A Wales of Cohesive Communities
School of Hard Knocks have delivered two course in the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff Central Areas, which uses high impact sport, a research-based curriculum and in-depth mentoring to help people improve their physical and mental wellbeing. The Vale of Glamorgan course ran over 9 weeks with 39 participants that have a varied disadvantaged background from criminal convictions to homelessness. Out of the 39 participants;
- 12 found work during the programme and;
- 11 completed the programme post lockdown
Within the Cardiff central course it had 26 men and 16 women signed up to an 8 week course, which identified self-declared barriers as the following:
- 7 have previous criminal convictions
- 6 had experienced homelessness
- 16 have diagnosed or self-diagnosed poor mental health
Out of the 42 participants;
- 3 Found work during the programme
- 27 Completed the programme
Feedback from participants: “This course is amazing. It’s just brilliant. To be honest, it’s saved me. I was in a really dark place and separating myself from other people. I really feel part of something now and I think hearing everyone’s stories has made it easier for me to speak”. Congratulations to all those involved!
