Heading outdoors with My Main Man

We have just completed our latest My Main Man project, at Violet Woods in Hawick.

My Main Man offers outdoor opportunities to children and their father figures (be that dads, step-dads, brothers or grandfathers) in areas of social deprivation. We have been running this project with NHS Borders since 2010.

This time around, our activities included shelter-building and ‘five-minute’ fires. We had a great time and as always it was rewarding to see the children and their father figure work well together in activities which involved problem-solving and teamwork. The group all agreed it was the best thing they had done together in such a long time – and that they wished they could have carried on for longer!
