The Active Essex Foundation team have been busy in the last few weeks attending events and also hosting workshops that focus on the needs of the young people within the community. A new Essex Youth Sport and Mental Health Project has been funded too by The National Lottery Community Fund.

The  Youth Sport Mental Health Project ensures early intervention to support young people experiencing low levels of emotional wellbeing. Physical activity can enhance lives at any stage but engaging with young people as they develop can ensure their mental health as an adult is improved.
