National Voices’ Wellbeing Our Way is about enabling people to manage their health in ways which matter to them. The programme works through community and voluntary organisations and is supported by The Health Foundation, an independent charity working to improve the quality of healthcare in the UK.
Few spaces left for Person Centred Information and Helplines POW WOW – 14 October
Wellbeing Our Way’s POW WOW series continues with a workshop focused on person centred information and helplines. The workshop will explore how high quality helplines and information can help reduce health inequalities, as well as how digital engagement can build resilience. PiF (Patient Information Forum) will be sharing their toolkit for creating health information that works.
The workshops are a great opportunity for shared learning between staff who work directly with people who use services, as well as those with strategic responsibilities for developing these types of services.
The workshop will be held 11am – 3pm in central London. Please click here to see an agenda and here to register to attend the workshop. Do also share these details with any colleagues you think may be interested.
Wellbeing Our Way’s communities of practice are bringing together small, diverse groups of voluntary and community organisations. We aim to make real headway in developing some of the ‘more than medicine’ approaches we know can enable people to manage their health needs and live well.
The communities of practice are focusing on:
- Supporting Self Management (first meeting: 29 September)
- Enabling people to influence (first meeting: 15 October)
- Peer Support (next meeting: 20 October)
- Demonstrating Impact (next meeting: 25 November)
- Care and support planning (next meeting: 8 February)
- Person-centred information and helplines (date tbc)
The communities aim to enable organisations to develop their practice in these areas, as well as making a valuable contribution to the development of these approaches across the voluntary and community sector more broadly. To find out more, including how to join, please contact Natalie.
