HENRY are passionate about babies and young children getting the best possible start in life. Over the last 10 years HENRY has developed, delivered and tested a highly effective behaviour change approach to supporting parents in providing a healthy start in life for babies and young children. The Charity also developed a programme for parents of primary school children which is being piloted and tested in 3 local authorities. HENRY is seeking to extend its behaviour change approach to supporting teenagers to adopt healthier lifestyles and improve their long-term physical and emotional wellbeing, through changes in physical activity and nutritional education.

The associate will develop an understanding of the HENRY approach and become a trained deliverer by working with HENRY training and development team to develop the programme and co-deliver it during feasibility study.
