About Wellbeing Bingo (for youth groups)
The Wellbeing Bingo game was developed in partnership with a group of young carers. It is an interactive tool to encourage young people to talk about their wellbeing and to support each other to make improvement. The game can be used by practitioners, such as youth workers, to support young people to understand the concept of wellbeing and to explore ways to improve wellbeing in a group setting. At this session, you will have the chance to play the game yourself. You will also be given a hard copy of the resource to take away.
