Improvements in health and wellbeing are achieved through strengthening the capacity of individuals, families and communities to actively participate, contribute and engage in everyday life. This subject will build the knowledge and skills needed to coordinate services, projects and activities that result in improved health and wellbeing and increased social capital. Evidence-based models of community engagement, citizen participation, health promotion, peer support, networking and activism will be developed and applied to real world case studies. Particular emphasis will be placed on mitigating the risks and barriers that contribute to poorer health and wellbeing outcomes for vulnerable, marginalised and isolated population groups.
