Report by F MacKay, Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership.

There was submitted a report by the Head of Planning and Health Improvement relative to an update on Year 1 Performance Indicators for reporting to the Community Planning Partnership Board.

The report advised that on 20 May 2015, an update on progress against year 1 targets for the Community Care, Health & Wellbeing indicators was presented to the Community Care, Health and Wellbeing Board. At that point the Health & Social Care Partnership did not have the results of the Adult Health and Wellbeing Survey 2014 and the Community Profile 2014 and could not therefore provide data against some of the indicators. The report intimated that the Survey results and Community Profile data were now available and a summary of progress was provided in the report.

DECIDED: That the update on progress against the indicators as detailed within the report be noted.

The presentation advised that 1,203 face-to-face interviews were carried out with adults in the Renfrewshire area. The survey findings related to: health behaviours such as smoking, alcohol, diet and physical activity; body mass index; access to health services; people’s perceptions of their health and well-being; social health; and social capital.

After further discussion it was agreed that there should be formal launch of the survey information similar to the previous launch three years ago in the marriage suite.

Report by D Reid, Renfrewshire Alcohol & Drug Partnership.
8
There was submitted a report by R Anderson, Renfrewshire Alcohol & Drug Partnership relative to an update on progress in relation to the project event Brighter Renfrewshire Alcohol Awareness Week (BRAW).

The report advised that the event took place between 15 and 19 June 2015 with the message focused on getting the most out of summer by being safe and having fun without excessive use of alcohol.

BRAW and the associated funding allowed a large scale campaign which highlighted sensible drinking messages to the community. Information was directly disseminated to around 2000 individuals via the road shows, community events and a street party. The BRAW branded posters were distributed throughout the locality which meant that the message reached an even wider audience and advertising in the Paisley Daily Express further promoted BRAW activity.

The funding also allowed engagement with the wider community, local groups and partner organisations, including licensed premises. This allowed networks to be established which would be useful in future partnership projects.

D Reid advised that evaluation of the impact funding had on those in receipt of BRAW awards was positive, with participants reporting positive outcomes and as a result of their BRAW activity this had allowed a distinct branding for alcohol awareness campaigns in Renfrewshire.

DECIDED: That the report be noted.
