We are excited to announce that this webinar will be the launch of the RSPH Health and Wellbeing Awards for 2021. Given the increased focus on Public Health, these awards are a great opportunity to recognise the work of public health professionals and others working to support people’s health during these challenging times.

In this webinar we will look at the work of two organisations whose programmes won award categories last year.

Stuart King is the CEO & Head of Distraction at “BeeZee Bodies” a behavioural change organisation primarily focusing on public health healthy lifestyle interventions and campaigns. BeeZee Bodies provide services to children, young people, families and adults in a range of innovative, evidence-based programmes designed to empower people to make sustainable changes to be happier and healthier.

Kathryn Forbes is Public Health and Impact manager at “Body and Soul”, a charity which uses a community-based and trauma informed approach to address the life-threatening effects of childhood adversity in people of all ages. Their work includes suicide prevention, supporting those living with or affected by HIV and supporting the needs of adopted children and young people.

In particular, the speakers will address the fundamental issues of using behaviour change principles within their work, practical interventions that support behaviour change, how to increase motivation and address ambivalence. Speakers will also explain the impact of winning an RSPH Health and Wellbeing awards.
