Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is an approach to behaviour
change that uses the millions of day-to-day interactions that
organisations and individuals have with other people to support
them in making positive changes to their physical and mental
health and wellbeing.
It supports the opportunistic delivery of consistent and concise healthy
lifestyle information and enables individuals to engage in conversations
about their health at scale across organisations and populations.
Resources available! provides resources
and information to support people and organisations implementing this
approach. Developed with multi-agency input at local, regional and
national level, it is a ‘one stop shop’ library of national and local resources
that can be used to support the development, implementation and
evaluation of MECC programmes across local communities.
Use the website to access:
• example frameworks
• case studies
• e-learning materials
• healthy lifestyle resources
• nationally agreed MECC resources developed in partnership through
a National MECC Advisory Group, including a consensus statement,
implementation guide, evaluation framework and training quality
marker checklist
• local and national contacts
• digital media products
• our online community of practice
