MECC training for third sector organisations taking place on 17th July 9:30-12:30

C3SC has partnered with the local Public Health Team to deliver Making Every Contact Count (MECC) training to third sector organisations in Cardiff that have an interest in helping people improve their health and wellbeing.

Many staff and volunteers in community groups and third sector organisations have regular interactions with the public. The training will provide tools that will help participants use those interactions as an opportunity to help people make healthy lifestyle choices.


What will be covered at the training?

The training will provide up to date and evidence-based information and resources on the subjects of smoking, physical activity, healthy eating, alcohol, mental wellbeing and immunisations. Participants will also be introduced to the ‘healthy chat’ model of behaviour change, based around the three principles of ask, advise and act.

By the end of the training participants will:

  • Understand the basics of healthy behaviour change.
  • Have up to date knowledge on health topics such as healthy eating, alcohol, mental wellbeing, physical activity, smoking and immunisations.
  • Have increased confidence in initiating and having informal discussions related to healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Have been provided with the resources and practical materials to help undertake “healthy conversations”.


The training will take place face to face at Butetown Community Centre. Light refreshments will be provided and lunch will be available at 12 midday.
