Participating services will receive a comprehensive resource pack for their setting. Services working to fully implement the programme and achieve the Healthy Ireland Award in the future will have free access to a dedicated Help Desk at NCN. Participants in the training programme will also receive their own CPD certificate upon completion of the training and return of their training evaluations which are so important to NCN and the HSE so we know what participants like about the programme and what might make it better.
Participating services need to agree the following criteria:
