Herald Higher Education Partnership Award

Congratulations to Tina Everington from our Health Promotion Service who, along with colleagues from Fife College and the Scottish Prison Service, picked up the Partnership Award at the 2019 Herald Higher Education Awards for an innovative project which aims to improve the health,
wellbeing and confidence of women at Cornton Vale.

As part of the Team Sally initiative women receive a ‘Team folder’, including a diary log book, calendar, pedometer and relaxation CD. They
are then encouraged to work through challenges and have the opportunity to complete a range of qualifications in personal development, health and wellbeing, nutrition, sport and fitness and core skills.

Launched in June 2018, initially to support the move to a smoke free prison, it also focusses on mental health, healthy eating, exercise and social interactions through Team Sally events.
