Whilst we don’t want to wish away our summer, 12th November will be here in next to no time so, don’t be caught out, start planning activities for Self Care Week now. In addition to the case studies featured in this newsletter, a range of material is freely available to help.
Self Care Week is an annual national awareness week that focuses on embedding support for self care across communities, families and generations.
Choosing Self Care for Life is the strap line and organisations are being encouraged to use Self Care Week as a hook to help people choose self care for a healthier, happier life.
Fact sheets, posters, logos as well as a communications document have been devised to help you with activity ideas. The Self Care Forum is also encouraging collaborative working with local partners to help strengthen messages and local population reach.
You can subscribe to the Self Care Forum e-newsletter for updates, resources, ideas and news about the latest self care activities.
For ideas on how to run Self Care Week please see “Successfully Delivering Self Care Week: Case Studies and Practical Advice.”
A £500 prize is available for the winner of the best Self Care Week initiative. See the criteria for details.
