The Elevate programme is offering free online training around using community development approaches as ways to reduce health inequalities. You can watch this short animation which shows why understanding the social determinants of health is crucial in effectively reducing health inequalities here and book on to one of our training courses if you are interested in finding out more.

Due to Covid-19, our Elevate training has moved to Zoom. Training will be offered to the community, voluntary and statutory sectors, with content to include:

  • Health inequalities in a regional and local context
  • The social determinants of health
  • Community development principles in action
  • Practical examples of action across the social determinants of health

You do not have to be a community development practitioner or a health professional to access this training – it is suitable for volunteers, paid workers and professionals from health, housing, education, environment, welfare and local government.

Portal Based Training Programme

The Elevate Portal will provide ongoing opportunities to access training on particular topics such as: the national occupational standards for community development, the social determinants of health, addressing social injustices and asset mapping. This training support will be provided through webinars and other interactive media.

If you are an experienced worker, new to this area of work or simply an interested individual, there will be something here for you.
