The Class of 92 backed charity, Foundation 92, have renewed their partnership with health care service provider Bupa Foundation on the back of a hugely successful initial campaign in 2021.
In the last year Foundation 92 and Bupa Foundation delivered over 4,000 bespoke essential packs which consisted of Educational Workbooks, family fun activities, food items, toiletries and mental wellbeing support to local families in need, as well as over 2,500 Bupa family activity packs, door to door in the local community.
The partnership also created a purpose-built family engagement group on Facebook with regular tips and updates on wellbeing which is currently accessed by over 180 families with this set to grow over the next 12-month period.
The partnership which was rolled out exclusively to Foundation 92 comes on the back of a recent study which showed 55.1% of young people didn’t engage in 60 minutes of physical activity a day, in 2020, due to the impact of COVID-19.
Through the support of Bupa Foundation, Foundation 92 has been able to change this via support packs, online fitness videos which have garnered almost 6,000 views with incredible feedback from all participants.
Head of Foundation 92, Tom Hutton, said: “Due to the fantastic impact of the first 12 months of the Foundation 92 and Bupa Foundation partnership, we are extremely pleased to be able to come together again for a further 12 months, supporting local families across Greater Manchester.
“The range of activities and support from the partnership has been tremendous and we are delighted to be able to provide further support through the scheme.”
To date, 3,200 hours of physical activity have been delivered from the Foundation 92 team, totalling 42 individual family members directly benefiting from workshops related to this partnership. Each Family has engaged in a minimum of 4 hours per week contact time, over a 6-week intervention, equalling over 480 direct contact hours across the project.
The programme is designed to be split equally between indoor learning, building family relationships and outdoor physical activity. Activity sessions have been delivered across all weekday evenings creating an inclusive and accessible environment for each family.
Foundation 92 focuses on supporting people to improve their lives through sport, with an emphasis on positive physical and mental wellbeing.
