Tackling the Blues

Since 2013, Edge Hill has partnered with Everton in the Community (EitC), the official charity of Everton football club. The partnership is designed to improve the lives of people who live in some of the most socially and economically deprived communities in the UK while enhancing the employability of our sport and physical activity students.

The Tackling the Blues project aims to improve the mental health of young people through sport, the arts, culture and education. Tackling the Blues teaches young people strategies for good mental and physical health, promote emotional literacy and improve self-esteem and confidence.
