Caring for our Community WHAT DO THE OVERALL RESULTS LOOK LIKE ?
Caring for our Community LEARNINGS Daytime course including a fee did not work. However evening sessions with no fee worked best Use of local media was paramount Not a “walk in the park” Success required intense support, texting, phoning and coaching. Overall feedback confirmed a non-judgmental approach from facilitators was important.
