Public Health Responsibility Deal

Making Every Contact Count

If people made the choice to improve their diet, take regular exercise, drink alcohol within the recommended daily limits, stop smoking and maintain a healthy weight, the benefits to their health, both physical and mental, and the benefits to the community would be enormous.

Our ambition of Making Every Contact Count is about using the vast human resource in Southend to inform and enable people to make these positive changes. The means to achieve this is by using consistent and simple healthy lifestyle advice combined with appropriate signposting to lifestyle services. Our aim is to train as many public facing members of staff and volunteers, from as many organisations in Southend as possible.
