A free football tournament is being held at Goals Soccer Centre in Middlesbrough to mark the end of what hopes to be a very successful Men’s Health Week.

The tournament, on Sunday 16 June, is open to workforce teams who are focussed on improving men’s health. As well as the competition there will also be stalls there promoting health initiatives and services specifically designed for men.

This event comes at the end of Men’s Health week (10-16 June). It is aimed to encourage men to be more active and also an opportunity for competing teams/workplaces to sign up with workplace health specialists employed by the trust and other agencies.

Those who do sign up will also receive health promotion materials and health improvement sessions from physical health checks to mental health awareness training, as the focus during Men’s Health Week this year is mental health.

Spaces for the tournament are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. If any organisation is interested they should register their interest with Goals on 01642 228200 before Friday 31 May.

For new organisations to register for any workplace health promotion information or sessions, please contact Richie Andrew at richie.andrew@nhs.net.
