In an initiative to enhance oral health awareness and support the community, the Local Public Health Coordinator, Victoria Major, has supplied West Mercia Women’s Aid with resources through an oral health improvement grant. The grant, designed to address the oral health needs of the community, includes a variety of resources aimed at promoting dental care and hygiene.
Among the valuable resources provided are engaging tools such as puppets, role-playing materials, and giant teeth, creating an interactive and educational experience for individuals of all ages. These resources are tailored to make oral health education enjoyable and accessible, fostering a positive impact on the community’s overall well-being.
In addition to the educational materials, West Mercia Women’s Aid also received a generous supply of toothbrushes and toothpaste suitable for all age groups. This practical contribution aims to ensure that families and individuals accessing the Women’s Aid services have the necessary tools to maintain good oral hygiene practices.
Jo Brown, Children and Young People’s worker, used this board in our refuge to show children and parents the amount of sugar in popular food and drink products.
“We would like to thank Jo Brown and her team in Herefordshire for their consistent hard work in supporting our public health messages. We thrive to support Herefordshire children and families to look after our teeth and use preventative measures to prevent dental decay.” said Victoria.
The initiative aligns with the ongoing mission of West Mercia Women’s Aid to support Herefordshire’s children and families. By emphasising preventative measures and providing essential resources, the collaborative effort seek to reduce dental decay and promote overall wellness.
