First blog post

Welcome to the Living Well Oxford blog.  We have appointed a Programme Manager, who will co-ordinate a 12-month pilot to develop and evaluate activities and events which will build expertise and evidence for a longer term larger-scale project.  We will focus this work in Oxford and will explore what the concept of “Living Well” means, drawing on areas that have significant public health impact, public interest and local research expertise, such as weight, diet and health, and ageing and dementia.  Initial activities will include:

* Setting up an Advisory Group

* Fundraising to support events and activities

* A health storytelling event at the Story Museum, as part of Oxfordshire Science Festival

* Working with seldom-heard communities to inform activity development

* Working with researchers to provide opportunities for public engagement and build capacity
