Satellite Clubs and group activities might be on hold for the time being, but our Youth Project Manager, Emma, has some ideas for online learning that will help your Satellite Club come back even stronger when social restrictions are lifted.
You might be a Satellite Club leader or volunteer, you might be thinking about starting a Satellite Club, or you might be a young person who is a part of one of our Satellite Clubs. Whatever your role in helping Hampshire’s young people get and stay active. There are things you can add to your toolkit even whilst working from home.
The tools are for both Mental Health First Aiders and for anyone who is working remotely or struggling a bit right now.
Perhaps more than ever before, we are being asked to be aware of our own, and each other’s mental health. Mental Health First Aid England has a selection of links and resources available on their website. The tools are for both Mental Health First Aiders and for anyone who is working remotely or struggling a bit right now.
There is also the brilliant Mental Health Awareness for Sport and Physical Activity by Mind. Not only is there an online training course. They also have a suite of resources and toolkits including; Sport and physical activity for people with mental health problems: a toolkit for the sports sector and Delivering a sport and physical activity service: a toolkit for mental health providers.
...the people who are the experts in young people's wants and needs are those young people!
It has always been the case that the people who are the experts in young people’s wants and needs are those young people! Co-production can seem daunting for those who aren’t used to working in that way. But there are some brilliant resources around to help you build a stash of ideas for consulting with your young people.
Co-production Oxfordshire have a simple online training course, as well as a comprehensive handbook. The course starts simply, with the definition of co-production. Good Practice Wales also have a selection of resources, including case studies and an audit tool, to help you improve your co-production skills.
Of course we know that many of our Satellite Club partners will already be doing some brilliant co-produced work with young people. If that’s you – we’d love to hear about it!
If you’re looking for some ideas on how to consult or co-produce remotely, watch this space!
Don’t forget, Club Matters is Sport England’s one-stop shop for clubs, groups and organisations involved in the delivery of physical activity and sport. Club Matters provides free, convenient, practical resources to help organisations to develop, grow and become more sustainable and successful. In particular, they have a suite of tools available to clubs looking for specific support during this pandemic.
An important part of learning is being able to talk about it with your fellow learners and colleagues, as well as passing on the learning to others. Why not feedback to your colleagues which articles you’ve enjoyed, or the podcasts you have found particularly interesting. And don’t forget to check out what the Energise Me team have been up to!
