SCAS joins local community in Blackbird Leys

Mar 21, 2024 | Members e-Bulletin, Stakeholder eBulletin

Helen Ramsay, Lead Governor and Public Governor, Oxfordshire and Alexander Rose, Emergency Care Assistant, attended a community event at Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre in Oxford, on 8 March, to promote Make Every Contact Count and share information about SCAS with local communities and organisations. The event was organised by Oxford City and County Council in collaboration with other networks.

Make Every Contact Count (MECC) is an approach to behaviour change that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that organisations and people have with other people to support them in making positive changes to their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Helen Ramsay said: ” It was wonderful to meet some of the variety of services and help that is offered around Oxford – and to meet many of the volunteers in this space too. It was such a great idea.”

Alexander Rose provided an excellent series of CPR demonstrations that encouraged people to stop and find out more about SCAS.
