Skadoosch – a provider of personalised classes for families (with children aged 3-11) that encourages positive social interaction and mental wellbeing through fun games and activities, have partnered with the Goodluck Hope Project to offer classes to the site’s families.
Together they have recognised how work-related mental health issues not only affect the individual, it also affects the individual’s family.
Designed by teachers, the games have been adapted for the home, to provide an opportunity for families to work together, and have fun whilst getting active.
Classes are customised to suit the family’s abilities, preferred intensity and desired outcomes and are delivered 1:1 with a Skadoosch Class Leader. The classes can also be held in the family’s home with the class leader dialling in via Zoom. The games can be played in small areas (2m x 2m) and use everyday items found easily around the house (such as pairs of socks and a washing basket).
Numerous families have participated in the classes to date and have really enjoyed the new way to spend time together as a family, having fun and remaining positive, particularly during the lockdown, with the father of one family saying:
“I think it was really good for us to do activities together as a family. I find it hard to switch off from work on the weekends as I’m always thinking about what I have to do on Monday when I go back and I struggle to spend good quality time with my family. I think continued use of these sessions help to reduce work stress levels”.
