Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about making the most of the opportunities to make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing. By supporting people to make changes to their lifestyles it is possible to prevent ill-health, improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities. MECC lets organisations and people develop a different way of working with people to address health and wellbeing. Telling people what to do is not the most effective way to help them change. Making Every Contact Count is about altering how we interact with people through having healthy conversations and learning how to spot opportunities to talk to people about their wellbeing.
There is a MECC small grants scheme in place (supported by Wiltshire Community Foundation) that is designed to support the costs of third sector organisations who wish to undertake MECC training and cascade it within their own organisation. Organisations can apply for a grant of up to £1,000 to support: room Hire and refreshments for a training event; payment of travel time and costs to attend a training event; payment of staff cover to release employees for training; promotional resources to cascade MECC within an organisation (promotional leaflets, IT time for changing website etc). Please see MECC download section for the grant guidance and application form.
