East Lothian Children and Young People Services Plan 2016-19 – seeking your help

have your say

Overview

Welcome to the Draft Children and Young People’s Services Plan 2016-2019 consultation.

The Draft Plan provides information about services for and about children, young people and families in East Lothian and makes proposals for improving outcomes for our children and young people’s health and wellbeing.

We are asking everyone in East Lothian to tell us what they think about the Draft Plan, including children and young people themselves.

This consultation exercise will run until the 13th of December (if you miss the deadline we will still aim to take into account comments made in writing to csp@eastlothian.gov.uk up until the 21st December).

A link to the consultation (and to the draft Plan itself and to a useful slideshow summary) is here: https://eastlothianconsultations.co.uk/childrens-wellbeing/children-and-young-peoples-service-plan

Workshop Invitation – How can we facilitate the role of grandparents in promoting healthy behaviour in children?

Workshop invitation: How can we facilitate the role of grandparents in promoting healthy behaviours in children? taking place on Friday 4th December 2015, 9.30am -12.30pm at Ben Cruachan Seminar Room, MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, Top Floor Herald Building, 200 Renfield Street, Glasgow, G2 3QB

Around 9 million grandparents look after grandchildren regularly within the UK, and 44% of children are looked after by their grandparents at least once per week. Grandparents can play a huge role in children’s lives, however, they are rarely the target of interventions to improve children’s long term health outcomes. This workshop seeks to examine these issues further.

It will present findings from the Cancer Research UK funded Growing Grandchildren project which looked at the evidence in this area and spoke with parents and grandparents about their experiences. Workshop discussion will be around key stakeholders’ interactions with families around children’s health behaviours (eg diet, exercise, weight, tobacco), with small group discussion focusing on how we can incorporate grandparents more into health promotion.

The format of the event is as follows:

9.30am Coffee/tea and registration

10.00am Welcome, introduction and overview of the study

10.10am Presentation 1 – What does the literature tell us about how grandparents impact their grandchildren’s health?

10.30am Feedback and discussion on Presentation 1

10.40am Presentation 2 – What did Scottish families tell us about how grandparents impact on children’s health behaviours?

11.10am Feedback and discussion on Presentation 2

11.20am Small group discussion – How can we work with grandparents and their families to improve the long term health outcomes of children?

11.50am Feedback and wrap up

12.00pm Lunch

Workshop facilitators are: Stephanie Chambers, Fiona Dobbie, Neneh Rowa-Dewar, Andrew Radley

You can register for this free workshop at: eventbrite-grandparents-in childrens-health
