Live Well Alliance
Together with the JustBe Croydon website and the Just Live Well face to face intervention, the Live Well Alliance forms an important part of the overall Live Well Croydon programme. It is a network of health, community and voluntary groups, workplaces and departments within the council. Its aim is to create a borough wide approach to influencing healthy behaviour and empowering communities to adopt healthier lifestyles and to promote a "health is everyone's business" approach. By working collaboratively we can reach out to all Croydon residents and increase our access to priority groups and to those who may be harder to engage with, offering the necessary support to enable them to live healthier lifestyles.
Alongside the Alliance we are rolling out a Make Every Contact Count (MECC) programme to capitalise on the day-to-day interactions between people. We aim to train a variety of people including those working in the voluntary and community sector, frontline staff who work with residents and health and well-being professionals. This training will give them the tools and confidence to support clients, friends, families and colleagues to lead healthier and happier lifestyles. This may be through signposting to available services and sources of information such as the JustBe Croydon website or simply having that initial conversation around health and lifestyle. If you wish to find out more or become involved please contact Shirley Piotrowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will also be producing a regular newsletter to keep you updated on the Live Well Croydon programme, our successes, events, details of our drop-in Health Hubs and much more. If you would like to be added to our distribution list please email email@example.com with "Subscribe to the newsletter" in the subject line *.
