The Health and Wellbeing Community Outreach programme for undergraduate learners was funded by Health Education England (HEE) and has now finished. A final evaluation report of the work is avaliable here. Universities in the North of England were tasked with developing innovative ways their health and social care undergraduate students could highlight issues around health and wellbeing in their local communities – particularly in school settings and offer an age appropriate health and wellbeing intervention. The work built on a pilot that was successfully completed by four participating universities across the Northwest.

Ten universities from across the North of England were able to deliver projects of their choosing, despite the significant challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic. Delivering community outreach work in a range of settings – including schools, the voluntary sector and in local community settings. The target audience were largely school age children but included those with long term conditions and family approaches as well. All participating universities will be evaluated their own projects and an overarching report summarising outputs and impact of all of the work has been produced by Manchester Metropolitan University.

Findings will be presented at a conference to be hosted by the University of Salford in November 2022 – further information to follow.
