What we do

We work with individuals and groups from the BME and wider community to improve their health and well-being, enhance social, cultural and economic inclusion and support community cohesion.

 

We specialise in providing advice, guidance and examples of best practice in implementing a whole    school and community based approach to addressing health issues, in particular with children and

young people.

We are able to work across a range of educational settings from early years to Universities.

 

We are dedicated to the improvement of the public’s health and well-being and working to educate, empower and support communities and individuals to become resilient and live healthy lives.

Volunteering

Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society and the community, the environment, or individuals outside one's immediate family. It is undertaken freely and without concern for financial gain.

 

Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people.
