The concept of football clubs delivering health initiatives is relatively recent in comparison to some of the more obvious and established work programmes, nevertheless the success of such initiatives has paved the way for a constantly evolving health programme at many clubs across the country.
Wolves Football Club has certainly played it's part in this revolution and in recent years Wolves Community Trust has developed various health initiatives which address the health needs of the local community. With a focus on delivering key health messages, providing health education, promoting healthy eating and encouraging and providing physical activity across all ages, Wolves Community Trust ensures their programmes are delivered to a high standard by working with various professionals. However, key to the success of the health programme is the positive partnership Wolves Community Trust has established with Wolverhampton Primary Care Trust. This partnership has been instrumental in accessing funds to deliver its key health initiatives such as Tackle Diabetes and Wolfie’s Workout.
Wolves Community Trust will continue to develop and support community work around the health agenda.
