Alongside delivery partners Mersey Care NHS Trust, Everton in the Community developed the Girls on Side programme as a way of providing activities for females with mental health issues.

And following the success of the initiative, where a range of opportunities in six-week blocks were offered, a taster session was held on recently to promote even more activity.

Held in the Brian Labone Suite, activities included hair and make-up, facial and massage, as well as arts and crafts.

Jackie Twort, Everton in the Community’s Sport Development manager, said “The taster was organised to promote the sessions we are offering as part of the Girls on Side project in partnership with Mersey Care NHS Trust.

“The idea was to showcase the types of activity available and find out what other things participants would like to get involved in.

“We are now going to look at the data we collected and put together a plan of activity for the next 12 months,” she continued.

“In the meantime, we are running Coffee and Chat sessions from 2-4pm every Tuesday at Goodison for anyone interested in attending, which is an opportunity to come along and meet new people in a very informal setting.”

As part of Girls on Side, there are currently sessions being held at the home of the Blues, which provide great opportunity for people to talk and interact with others.
