DIY Health

The DIY Health project provides a useful framework for delivering important health messages, emphasising the collaboration between health professionals, learning specialists and local people. This is of particular relevance when supporting parents to manage minor ailments in children under the age of 5 appropriately.
The sessions are based on a 12 week curriculum co-designed by parents and the facilitation team. The core curriculum covers fever, gastroenteritis, colds and flu, feeding and eczema (continually negotiated).
Working with families to design interventions that are developed with and for them is key to their success. The DIY project is underpinned by this co-productive approach and gives parents a stake in their healthcare environment, in line with self-care approaches.
