Objectives

To engage with local service providers and council members, raise awareness of the WLE project and its resources and signpost organisations to materials and contacts.

The activity

The Public Forum for Education (PFE) is an open forum where everyone, including parents and carers, young people and professionals, is welcome to come along and contribute. Council decision makers - senior elected members and officers, join the debates and listen to views. They report back to PFE what action they have taken as a result of the meeting.

This year, the PFE provided an update on the Born in Bradford study and a chance to engage with local health promotion initiatives for families and children.

WLE had a stall which included all the project's resources and the ‘guess how much sugar is in your favourite drink’ game. Attendees were able to engage with the project before the event began and during a market session half way through the event.
