Upcoming Awareness Events in January 2020

Dry January

Established in 2013 by the UK charity Alcohol Concern, DRY JANUARY  is the non profit organisations flagship campaign which has been changing the conversation about alcohol over the past number of years. Taking part in the campaign is a chance to ditch the hangover, reduce the waistline, and save some serious £££ by giving up alcohol for 31 days.

 

STIQ Day

STIQ Day has been launched to get people thinking about their sexual health and encourage more people to get regular sexual health checks. No one likes to think they’ve caught a sexually transmitted infection (STI) but without a test you just can’t be sure.
This year STIQ Day takes place on 14th January, a date chosen because many common STIs such as Chlamydia can take two weeks to be detectable. If your festive season included unprotected sex then you should be thinking about getting tested now. Also with just one month to go before Valentine’s Day anyone hoping to enjoy the celebrations to the full should do so knowing that they are infection free and will not be putting someone else’s sexual health in danger.

 

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week

Do you know how cervical cancer can be prevented? During Cervical Cancer Prevention Week we want as many people as possible to know how they can reduce their risk of the disease and to educate others.

 

Sugar Awareness Week

Action on Sugar are pleased to announce that this year’s Sugar Awareness Week will take place from the 20th-26th January 2020. Sugar Awareness Week will be an opportunity to celebrate the success of food industry, government and NGOs’ progress so far, and discuss the future for sugar and calorie reduction and it’s place in the government’s Childhood Obesity Plan.

 

Young Carers Awareness Day

Each year Carers Trust organises Young Carers Awareness Day. The purpose of the day is to raise public awareness of the challenges faced by young people because of their caring role, and to campaign for greater support for young carers and their needs.

 

National Bug Busting Day

Why take part on Bug Busting Days? Because informed, united action stops head lice from circulating endlessly. Combing wet, conditioned hair with a Bug Buster comb is a reliable detection method even when very few lice are present. Thoroughly wet lice stay still; dry or damp lice move quickly away from disturbance evading detection. Bug Busting is an educational programme in reliable head louse detection. It delivers the ‘whole school approach’ (National Healthy School Standard).
