Make Every Opportunity Count in Greenwich


Every day staff and volunteers in Greenwich talk to hundreds of local residents (and colleagues) who are dealing with all sorts of issues and challenges that affect their health and wellbeing.

Make Every Opportunity Count (MEOC) is about spotting opportunities within these everyday conversations to signpost people quickly and easily to local Live Well one-stop resources with information and services that can help.

Making Every Opportunity Count is not about adding to your workload and you don't have to be an expert to do it. In fact, signposting can take as little as 30 seconds, as part of your existing conversations at work, but this could make a real difference to someone's health, wellbeing and quality of life. This is why it counts.

Whatever your role, if we all Make Every Opportunity Count, together we can improve the health and happiness of local people on a huge scale.

The Greenwich Health and Wellbeing Board encourage all staff and volunteers working across Greenwich to complete this e-learning training. For Further information please contact Sonia Sharma sonia.sharma@royalgreenwich.gov.uk or call 0208-921-2946
