Online learning – Making Every Contact Count (MECC) Training Course for volunteers, those working in community settings and non clinical roles

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

  • This event has passed.



This MECC Training course is intended for individuals who are working  in the community, including volunteers

MECC is an approach to behaviour change that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that we have with people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing. It supports the delivery of consistent and concise healthy lifestyle information, enabling individuals to engage in conversations about their health.

A MECC conversation takes a matter of minutes and is not intended to add to the busy workloads. Rather than telling people what to do, MECC is about recognising opportunities to talk to people about their health and wellbeing using the skills of asking and listening – it’s about enhancing the conversations we have.

This training is a free, interactive online training , for anyone working with the public (face-to-face or via phone) in Oxfordshire in a voluntary role. If you are staff and would like the training then to contact us to arrange something separately at

In this training you’ll develop the competence and confidence to have conversations around smoking, alcohol, physical activity, health eating, and mental wellbeing – to support people to make positive lifestyle changes.
