Giving children the best start in life is an aspiration of the Scottish Government “Every child deserves every chance” and Fife Council’s Children’s Services Plan stats “Fife where every child and young person matters”. Therefore, it is important the children and young people impacted by poverty are given special attention so that their needs matter, listen to and heard.
Aims: The course aim is to increase participants’ understanding of health literacy and its impacts on health and wellbeing.
