Healthy Weight, Healthy Nutrition (HWHN) Champions Training
This one-day course is aimed at health visitors or those practising at an equivalent level. It will prepare practitioners to be place-based informal leaders of Healthy Weight, Healthy Nutrition, using opportunities to influence stakeholders and services around needs of families, to identify gaps locally, and to improve support available. Additionally, the day will equip Champions to deliver a half-day cascade session to enable colleagues to also become Healthy Weight, Healthy Nutrition Champions. The latest evidence base will be used to provide participants with a deeper knowledge and understanding of this important area of public health.
Champions will have access to Champions training resources, our digital toolkit of evidence and useful resources, newsletters, updates and webinars to maintain their confidence and competence (while grant funding continues). Access to Champions materials is granted for 2 years following training and can be renewed for a small fee following this period.
The programme is delivered as:
- Private events – to commission us, you will need a cohort of 20 participants. Costs on request.
- iHV-hosted events – up to 5 places can be booked (subject to availability).
- Grant-funded events – on occasions we can offer this programme without charge due to generous grant funding. Places are offered on a first come first served basis and early notice is offered to iHV members.
