Gifting the Bookbug Bags: awareness sessions for health staff
Health staff are integral to the successful delivery of the Bookbug programme, and we have designed an awareness session to support and enthuse them in their bag gifting role. This session explores the contents of the Bookbug bags in-depth and discusses how they support bonding and attachment, language and literacy development and overall good health.
Who’s eligible: All members of health visiting teams/health staff or others who gift Bookbug Baby Bags and Bookbug Toddler Bags.
Course duration: 1 hour
