Healthy Start

Healthy Start is a national government scheme, which provides money through a payment card to eligible people who are pregnant or who have young children.

The video is ideal to use during a team meeting or training session. The video lasts 32 minutes, including pauses for interaction and reflection the session.

Please have your phone or an internet-connected device available so you can take part in an interactive element at the end of the session. You will get the most out of this session if you designate a facilitator from your group to take you through the content – they don’t need any prior experience of the subject – just to be able to facilitate discussions during the pauses and collect your responses and reflections. We would also appreciate if the facilitator can ensure everyone completes our online feedback form. It is a good idea for the facilitator to have some experience of facilitation.

This Healthy Start training module is presented by Good Food Oxfordshire, with Oxfordshire County Council.
