Virtual Live Learning Session: MECSH

Bitesize learning session

For the maternity and early years workforce, volunteers and students

Wednesday 5 June 2024

10.00am - 11.30am

Online via MS Teams

MECSH (Maternal Early Childhood Sustained Home Visiting): The theory and practice of delivering structured home visits to mothers and their babies.

A reflective discussion on how the MESCH programme aims to promote the emotional and social wellbeing of mothers and their babies.

The programme offers to set the foundations for a positive life trajectory with early health promotion and interventions to improve outcomes for families in Bradford.

This session includes a theoretical explanation and introduction of the programme from the MECSH Implementation Champion and a Health visitors personal experience of delivering the programme using tools to assess and track the success of the programme.

The messages conveyed from this session will include an understanding of the importance of offering an enhanced service to families in Bradford to:

  • Improve parenting abilities through practical parent/child engagement.
  • Improve health outcomes through play, establishing healthy routines.
  • Improve the quality of the home environment to promote learning and development.

The Better Start Bradford Virtual Live Learning Sessions are a great opportunity to learn more about the Better Start Bradford programme from our broad range of partners, and apply this learning to your work and the broader ‘Babies, Children and Young People’s Prevention’ agenda.

We welcome you to explore the other topics on offer during May-July 2024 and to book places on as many sessions as you’d like. All sessions are free and are held via MS Teams.

These events are designed for practitioners, volunteers and students in public, voluntary, education, arts and any other organisations who work with and support families, plus anyone who wants to know more about our work in the Bradford district.
