Dragons Community are pleased to announce that our first challenge ‘Walk the Dragons Way’ - in partnership with Dad’s Can Cymru - is underway as participants will look to complete as many steps as possible over the next three weeks.
Dragons staff will be taking part in the challenge that will see seven groups of three participating in the event, in order to raise awareness around men’s mental health and the daily struggles fathers face.
Dads Can Cymru – part of the successful Dads Can project and funded by the National Lottery – helps fathers and father figures overcome challenges such as low confidence, mental ill health, relationship breakdown, access to children and negative lifestyle choices.
Dads Can Cymru operates across Newport and Monmouthshire utilising a coaching and mentoring approach through 1:2:1 and group work sessions, empowering dads to identify and resolve challenges they face.
Dragons have joined forces with the pioneering work of the project to help build on the existing network of support so individuals in need can share, learn, explore and process emotional issues.
Gareth Sullivan, Inclusion Officer at Dragons Rugby, said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Dads Can Cymru to support the innovative and vital support work they deliver across our region.
"We’re pleased to launch ‘Walk the Dragons Way’ our first event in partnership with Dads Can Cymru. This event is the first of many in what we hope will be a long and fruitful partnership.”
The pioneering new partnership between Dragons Community and Dads Can Cymru will also see interactive technology and virtual support used to deliver workshops alongside physical activity sessions.
