The Prevention Team will focus on whole population campaigns, training and community awareness. The Intervention Team will deliver evidence based interventions and group work for the Over 50s and their families, primarily through outreach. The Skills and Development Programme will provide a comprehensive training package in the community targeted at various audiences from peers through to frontline practitioners
