Sports Students Support Community Well-being Day

A group of Sports students from Coleg Menai took centre stage at a council-run well-being initiative for adults with additional leaning needs and disabilities.

Sport & Exercise Science and Sports Coaching & Development students from the college’s Bangor site supported and assisted the attendees during the 'Well-being Day', which was organised by Llwybrau Llesiant through Gwynedd Council.

The 10 students were involved with sporting activities such as basketball, football, boccia, fitness sessions, mindfulness sessions, as well as problem-solving activities such as Jenga and Connect 4.

Over 40 service users from Antur Waunfawr, Ysgol Pendalar, and other additional leaning needs day service providers, enjoyed a full day of activities. Cegin Arfon, which is run by day service users, provided the refreshments on the day.

A representative from Gwynedd Council was on-hand to share information relating to general well-being with individuals, employees, and families, about opportunities within Llwybrau Llesiant, Byw’n Iach, Digital Citizen Wales, Active for Life, and how to use the National Referral Scheme.

Llwybrau Llesiant is a project run by Gwynedd Council's Learning Disability Service. This project is funded by the Welsh Government's Integrated Care fund. Its goal is to develop the potential of adults with learning disabilities by following different well-being pathways.
