Making Every Contact Count is an approach that uses the millions of day to day interactions that organisations and individuals have with people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing. Rather than telling people what to do Making Every Contact Count is about recognising opportunities to talk to people about their wellbeing using the skills of asking and listening. Making Every Contact Count is not intended to add to busy workloads. The course signposts to appropriate VSCE organisations and their available trainingEssential Information

Overweight children are more likely to have poorer mental and emotional health, with many experiencing teasing and bullying linked to their weight. They may have low self-esteem, be socially isolated and regularly take days off school, resulting in poor attendance. They are also more likely to become obese adults with a higher risk of chronic ill health, disability and premature mortality. As part of a holistic approach to a child’s health and wellbeing, professionals & practitioners in health, education and social care have a responsibility to help families recognise and acknowledge the importance of a healthy weight. Like many sensitive subjects, it is often the way in which the issue is talked about rather than the issue itself that causes problems for both practitioner and family. The stigma attached to obesity makes it harder for practitioners and families to talk openly and constructively about it. This course aims to build confidence in raising the issue of weight with families. A brief and appropriate conversation can be an important first step towards positive wellbeing.Essential Information
This course is aimed at SENCOs and practitioners working with children with social communication difficulties or with a diagnosis of ASC or children with language delay and short attention spans, who want to explore new ideas to develop small group attention, interaction and participation.
The course will include a brief insight into working with and supporting children with social communication difficulties or ASC. It will explore how a different approach can support children to develop attention skills to support development of children’s spontaneous use of language and follow rules and boundaries in a group activity. This approach is also appropriate for children who are experiencing general delayed language development.
It will provide an introduction into using bucket activities in your setting, and the four stages to develop children’s attention.
There will be lots of practical demonstrations of activities you can experience to inform your practice, and ideas to take back and use.
