Families in Seaham hit the beach this summer to take part in activities including sandcastle building, arts and crafts and sport sessions.
Organised by Durham County Council’s One Point Service, the first session was held at the beach, with the second taking place at a local park, where families took part in fun team-building activities.
In total, 25 children between the ages of four and 17 took part in the session, which also included fun activities such as stress ball-making.
Abigail, aged 14, said: ”It was fun playing games with the One Point workers and getting to know them.”
Ethan, aged 7, said: ”I have not been to the beach for a long time because my Mum is poorly. I am really happy me and my sister were invited.”
The One Point Service provides help and support for children, young people and families from early pregnancy up until the young person reaches the age of 19 years and for young people with a disability, up to the age of 25 years.
This integrated team is made up of a number of multi-disciplinary staff who provide support with a range of issues including: parenting skills, building positive relationships, reducing risk taking behaviour, improving school attendance, and progression into learning.
