Campaigns

We support campaigns linked to oral health conditions to raise awareness and encourage groups or individuals to seek information and services. Through any increase in knowledge, over time and in the longer term people can change attitudes. Particularly when other intervention programmes are used, to empower change in their behaviour.

The campaigns we actively support and promote on a local level are:
