Community organisations and their volunteers are supporting our most vulnerable residents through the COVID-19 pandemic and at times may see opportunities to talk to them about positive health and wellbeing.

Making Every Contact Count can enable volunteers in their day-to-day interactions with people to offer brief advice around physical and mental health wellbeing.

Cornwall VSF is looking to run a three-hour online session via Zoom which can be accessed on any device.

Here is a summary of skills you will learn:

  • Identify key health messages and the importance of healthy lifestyle choices
  • Know how to deliver brief advice that will help motivate
  • When and how to signpost to other support services.
