Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is about making the most of the opportunities to make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing. By supporting people to make changes to their lifestyles it is possible to prevent ill-health, improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.
The MECC small grants scheme supports the costs of third sector organisations who wish to undertake MECC training and cascade it within their own organisation.
Organisations can apply for a grant of up to £1,000 to support: room hire and refreshments for a training event; payment of travel time and costs to attend a training event; payment of staff cover to release employees for training; promotional resources to cascade MECC within an organisation (promotional leaflets, IT time for changing website etc).
