If, through your work or volunteering, you meet people in Oxfordshire who may be eligible for the Healthy Start scheme, this training was made for you. We hope it will help you gain an understanding of the barriers many people face when it comes to accessing and using their Healthy Start card, and equip you to support them to overcome these barriers.
The video is ideal to use during a team meeting or training session. The video content of this session lasts 20 minutes, and with pauses for interaction and reflection the session lasts 30 minutes.
Please have your phone or an internet-connected device available so you can take part in an interactive element at the end of the session. You will get the most out of this session if you designate a facilitator from your group to take you through the content – they don’t need any prior experience of the subject – just to be able to facilitate discussions during the pauses and collect your responses and reflections. We would also appreciate if the facilitator can ensure everyone completes our online feedback form. It is a good idea for the facilitator to have some experience of facilitation.
