We operate across London supporting local people to lead in their communities and engage and facilitate in their mother tongue. We are currently working in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Islington. Wherever health inequalities are present we aim to support and partner with local people to take control of their heath and well being.
East london genes & health
In East London, South Asian people have some of the highest rates of heart disease, diabetes, and poor health in the UK. East London Genes & Health is a research study, led by Queen Mary University of London, set up to help fight against these and other major diseases.
maternity voice partnerships
Maternity Voices Partnerships are teams of parents, professionals and commissioners working together to improve local maternity services. We ensure women and their families are able to participate in Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Newham.
The garden Project
The Garden Project is a free, 6 week course for people living in Hackney with a long term health condition who want to meet new people, learn more about how to manage their conditions and discover a multi award winning local, community garden.
Tower Hamlets Health Advice Links
Providing generalist advice services across 17 GP practices in Tower Hamlets residents can access support on areas such as: Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payments, Employment Support Allowance, Housing, Tax Credits and much more.
Sure STEPS offers one to one peer support to pregnant women and parents from Tower Hamlets who are struggling with the challenges of parenting from pregnancy up to the first year with the baby. We are looking for peer-supporters to join the project.
Cancer awareness project
Cancer survival rates in the UK continue to lag behind comparable countries, with late diagnosis linked to poor survival. We are working across East London to increase public awareness of the symptoms, reduce negative attitudes and encourage action against cancer.
Through eight weekly sessions focusing on developing knowledge and practical skills relating to healthy eating, portion size and gentle exercise, Good Moves improves the health, health care utilisation, and self-management behaviours of residents with one or more long-term conditions.
Offering Good Moves completers peer-support groups in multiple languages to keep building on action-planning, walking groups to explore the local area in a friendly, sociable environment, and more intensive 1-2-1 befriending for those most isolated and vulnerable.
