East Sussex County Council commissioned us to do some training with our volunteers around public health promotion. The idea being to equip our volunteers with the tools to be able to hold discreet and natural conversations with our participants about those areas of their lifestyles that might be having an adverse effect on their health.

The important thing about our Gig Buddies project is that it's about friendships and so it was important in delivering this training that the emphasis was on having natural conversations and not preaching health awareness at our participants. Not always the best thing to talk about when you're at a gig!

The training was accredited and delivered by McCrudden Training and finished with an evening session to develop some easy to read guides around some of the areas covered in the training.

We hope you find them useful.
