Event description

Description

You are invited to attend a fourth networking event looking at how we can work with Public Health Dorset and the LiveWell Dorset service to improve health and wellbeing in Bournemouth and Poole.

• Celebrate the voluntary and community sector (VCS) contribution to health and wellbeing (H&WB)

• Help you to improve your impact and measurement on H&WB

• Help you to understand what support, advice and training is on offer

• Improve your understanding of LiveWell Dorset (LWD) service to better refer users to them

• Allow you to network with other VCS groups, Public Health and LWD.

LiveWell Dorset started operating on 1 April 2015 by Optum, a leading health services organisation, to develop a phone and online hub, helping to improve the health and wellbeing of local residents, funded by Public Health Dorset. LiveWell Dorset is a single point of contact that helps people with their health and wellbeing, including advising people about their smoking, drinking, weight, diet and exercise, and assisting them to adopt a healthier lifestyle, potentially reducing the risk of developing more serious health issues later in life. The service is available to the more than 750,000 people in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset. It offers local residents one countywide contact number and a website that can help tailor the right level of support for each person’s needs. The hub aims to make it easier for community partners, such as voluntary organisations, charities and community groups, and health professionals to refer people to the service.

LiveWell Dorset and Public Health are very keen to work closely with the voluntary and community sector and this event will be an ideal opportunity to find out what support is now available and will be in the future to help your organisation improve its impact on health and wellbeing. There will be a mix of presentations and table discussions. There will also be a free lunch so you can network with LiveWell Dorset, Public Health and each other (please see Agenda).

NB we are currently restricting attendance to a maximum of 2 people per organisation but let us know if you wish to send more than 2 in case places become available closer to the event. You will still need to register the first 2 places on Eventbrite but we will be holding a waiting list in case additional places are available.

Please do not arrive at the venue before 9:15am to allow us time to set up.
