This year more than 2,000 year 6 children from more than 70 schools will be attending.

Our Social Inclusion Team along with their volunteers attend the event every year and facilitate the 5 steps to Wellbeing workshops , the workshop focuses on five key elements for a healthy mind and body:

  • Connect
  • Take Notice
  • Give
  • Keep Learning
  • Be Active

Team Manager Dominika Lipska-Rosecka said: “This will not only be an enjoyable event, but also an important learning experience for the youngsters.

“The Crucial Crew has been taking place annually for many years now, and each year it gets better and better.

“The children who come along have a great day out with fun workshops and activities, but most importantly they learn about how to stay safe, healthy and happy.

“We’re delighted to have so many children attending this year, and hope the lessons they learn will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”
