Making Every Contact Count+

Supporting Care Navigation


To tie in with our work on social prescribing, the MECC+ Supporting Care Navigation workshop is for staff and volunteers working in health, social care or community settings.

It provides an opportunity to consider the wider determinants of ill-health and the factors affecting people’s physical and mental wellbeing such as housing, money, relationships, lifestyle choices and confidence.

The workshop looks at how care navigation and linking with local community-based activities can enable people to make positive changes that improve their own health and wellbeing.
