The Wood Foundation has invested in a two-year Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Sport Aberdeen and Glasgow Caledonian University.
ProActive Minds is designed to improve young people’s mental health. A sport and exercise psychologist, appointed as the Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate, is driving the project in Aberdeen through the Active Schools network. They will develop resources, upskill staff and volunteers, and provide individual support to children and young people across Aberdeen City.
The ambition for the pilot is to demonstrate the value of the approach and for it to be rolled out nationally.
