Making Public Health & Health Promotion Everyone’s Business

Farzana Latif has worked in education, health promotion and public health and is now an independent consultant in Public Health, based in Slough. She has been involved in the health trainer initiative and many of the examples of training discussed in the presentation relate to this work. The presentation focused on some of the challenges involved in recruiting and training lay people, particularly among seldom heard groups, including those whose first language is not English and those who have been excluded from the education system.  Farzana highlighted the need to draw upon innovative, inclusive approaches to engaging and supporting people who might be put-off by traditional approaches to recruitment and training. She described a training model with three different levels: Level 1 - working with communities to raise awareness; Level 2 - working in groups to raise awareness and Level 3 - working on behaviour change on a one-to-one basis.
