Dawn Pridham

Dawn Pridham, is Service Manager at Newport City Council. Dawn will present on Newport’s experience of integrating self-assessment into their service delivery. Newport CC’s work led directly to the first regional programme for AskSARA in Wales: AskSARA for Gwent was funded by the Public Service Board covering the combined areas of Newport, Caerphilly, Torfaen, Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent, overall reaching a quarter of the population of the principality. This programme aimed to promote wellbeing through self-assessment online as part of a broader prevention programme.

 

Louise Lapworth

Louise Lapworth from Warwickshire County Council will share details of the multimedia campaign she ran to promote use of AskSARA in Warwickshire. Using a variety of media the campaign led to an outstanding set of usage figures reaching older and disabled people in the county. Louise will share details of the project and data from analysing its effectiveness.
