When a little chat can make a difference

The aim of the free Making Every Contact Count (MECC) training Living Well Sefton provides is to maximise the opportunities front line workers have to increase the number of healthy chats in Sefton.

Anyone attending will be given advice and support for behaviour change so that people can have better health and live longer, healthier lives. The aim of the training is to maximise the opportunities participants have to increase the number and quality of brief interventions in Sefton.
