Health Van Supports Men’s Health Week

Newcastle United Foundation today (Friday 19 June) unveiled their new Health Van at East End Pool in Byker to coincide with activity around the city to promote Men’s Health Week.

The van, which is fully branded and designed inside with a dressing room feel in mind, will use the power of football and in particular the Newcastle United Foundation brand to encourage men in the region to take a more proactive approach to Health and Wellbeing.  

The Health Van will be utilised to promote the Foundation’s Health and Wellbeing focus as well as promoting healthy living to children, young people and adults who participate in programmes run by our Football, Youth and Community and Fundraising Projects.  

Raising awareness of the Foundation’s Health and Wellbeing Programme will in turn help the Foundation educate local communities on how to lead a healthier lifestyle and signpost people to local services.

The Health Van is supported by Newcastle City Council Public Health.

Newcastle United Foundation Health and Wellbeing Project Manager, Charlotte Dodson, said, “The Health Van is a brilliant opportunity for us to raise awareness of healthy living amongst communities in Newcastle.  We’ll be holding consultations to determine what sessions people would like to see taking place in their area to best encourage engagement in physical activity. 

“Already our Walking Football sessions are proving incredibly popular so we know they are a great way for people to take the first step towards a more active lifestyle.  We’ve got really ambitious plans for our Health and Wellbeing programme and the Health Van is a great tool to help us make people aware of support and opportunities available that can help them live a healthier life.”
