Welcome to the Nutrition and Hydration Programme for Tameside

On this page, you will find resources and information related to raising awareness of malnutrition and dehydration as we work with partners across the borough to prevent these avoidable conditions in people over 65.
So far we have recruited almost 100 Nutrition and Hydration Champions who are out in the community and in the Trust having these conversations with our residents and their families and carers. If you would like to become a Nutrition and Hydration Champion and be trained up by our health Improvement Service Be Well, please contact Lauren Foster on:
Nutrition and Hydration week is 14th -20th June this year and we are doing a big push on raising awareness during this week and beyond:
