You will have comfort breaks through-out the day and 1 hour for lunch. We will not be providing food, so you will need to bring a packed lunch.

On this course, you will explore 5 Topics:

What is Health

– What being healthy and being well means to you and different people

Power and Powerlessness

Recognising and Building on the Strengths of Communities

Achieving Change for Health

– Is about people using their powers together to change situations and develop their community. Creating opportunities to do activities that raise health and wellbeing.

Skills for working with others

– Keeping strong, supporting friends and family or getting a group going requires particular skills. On this part you will identify and work on yours.
