WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
Supporting, engaging and inspiring the community though a range of workshops and educational pathways. Working in partnership with local schools and other referal services to help those who need our help the most. We help by making lasting change in people lives, helping with future planning, goal setting, aspirations, communication and wider life resilience, education and employability.
SPORTS & RECREATION FOR EVERYONE
We help uplift the Community by bringing people together. We provide a range of inclusive sporting and physical activities for our service users to take part in. Boxing and fitness is one our most successful programs which helps develop the physical, mental and social wellbeing of our service users. We harness the power of neuroplasticity, and our abilities to develop our neurology and mindsets. Working and connecting together we build upon strength and resilience within the community.
ADULT & YOUNG PEOPLE
FFG Foundation was formed due to the board of directors noticing a huge need of support services within the area.
Working in partnerships we support local people in their times of need. We are based within County Durham an area which sadly has a suicide rate 37.5% higher than the national average. We aim through our work to improve quality of life and have a direct impact on reducing this national statistic.
Bringing the community together
We believe in bringing the community together, providing support, friendship and helping people advance further in life. A study published in Health Affairs highlights a benefit to cohesive communities. In the study, which tracked 2,264 children from 1998-2000, researchers found that neighbourhoods with high social cohesion fostered better mental health outcomes for adolescents.
