Programmes and Initiatives run by the ERYC Sport, Play & Arts

Please see below relevant programmes and initiatives which are being run by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Sport, Play & Arts Service.  The events are currently running in the community for children and young people to access:

Us Kids Can 

The Project will be based around behaviour and lifestyle within young people and how this affects weight gain, sleep and knowledge around living healthy.  Sports Coaches have recently received behaviour training which will help with the delivery of the sessions and work with young people that may have some mental health issues.  The project is run on schools' sites and is based around a family change so parents/carers must attend the sessions.  The programme is currently being run in one Goole School and one Bridlington School with positive feedback received from parents.  

The Sport, Play & Arts Service is looking for other schools which would be interested in this Project and have spaces available for delivery starting in April and June.  If you know any schools in your cluster that would be interested in this opportunity please contact the Sport, Play & Arts Service.  For more information or future booking for April/June and any general enquiries regarding the programme please contact or
