As an organisation we are primarily known for our work with Young People and Adults. However we also do a significant amount of work with children and young families, through our work with young people, within the domestic abuse services and our child therapeutic services.

The Scarborough Activities coordinator was asked by young parents to be involved in a swimming and picnic day out to increase their fitness and wellbeing. The group met and walked to the swimming pool in Scarborough and had a great time introducing their babies to the pool and having a good splash around in and out of the floats that the Mums brought along, there was a bit of trepidation by one baby but they soon were having much fun.

Swimming burns lots of calories and so young Mums and babies had a picnic in the nearby park afterwards and talked about healthy food options to give babies and preparation methods.
