Make Every Meal Count

 FREE Healthy Eating and Behaviour Change Training for those working with adults or families in West Northants

Public Health in West Northamptonshire have teamed up with Community Health-Works UK CIC to offer free training on healthy eating and lifestyle behaviour change for different groups in the workforce who work directly with adults and families. The training has been very well-received by various teams so far and is relevant to anyone in a client-facing role who works within statutory services or commissioned services working directly with these same client-groups. It is sadly not designed for schools.
