NICHI Tool Kit Launch 2019

We were delighted to launch the NICHI Model Tool kit last night. The Communities Improving Health Model Toolkit was developed by the NICHI Project Officers, for community-based practitioners who want to support local communities to build a healthier community. The toolkit outlines the process of supporting communities through the “Model” and includes sample resources. It is an evidence based resource, using community development, outcomes based accountability and co-production approaches, and the knowledge and experiences of communities and NICHI Project Officers, with guidance from the NICHI steering group.

Participants at the Launch had the opportunity to experience and learn more about the toolkit and meet groups from across the Northern Locality area, who, through signposting, building capacity and strengthening local accountability, are helping to reduce health inequalities and develop healthy and sustainable communities.
