Community Health Project (CHP)
Through CHP we provide health promotions, advocacy and complement expert advice by workshop seminars and training on health issues as it affects our target group, working through a number of formal partnership structures.
We work in partnership with other health groups statutory agencies and international bodies to promote health and wellbeing.
In addition, we provide educational resources and training about mainstream support to better health and living so that Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups become well informed of actions to address social and circumstantial factors that limits their health.
We run a number of workshops that support people to lead healthier lives. Our aim is to provide culturally sensitive and accessible preventative clinical health information and services to the Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME).
These workshops include:
- Healthy Eating
- Healthy Heart
- Glaucoma Awareness
- Diabetes Awareness
- Mental Health Well Being
- HIV & Aids Prevention
The Drop-in centre runs a number of services that work in partnership with local organisations to help tackle the problems of ill health and promote well-being in the community.
We can help you to access:
- Mental health services and emotional support
- Sexual health and family planning (FREE condoms provided)
- HIV and AIDS services
- Child health services
- Disability and special needs services
- Women’s health (including Community Midwives)
- TB screening
- Many other community health services
Black Organ Donation (BOD)
One of our advocacy and promotion topics is the Black Organ Donations.
In partnership with Kings College Hospital we organise workshops and symposiums aimed at demystifying the taboos that surrounds the issue of BOD among the Black, Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities in the UK.
