Health for All

Health for All is a new project that brings together grassroots neighbourhood groups with NHS health services to improve the health of people living in areas with poor health outcomes.

Health for All will create peer networks of people who are dealing with health issues  - including diabetes, COPD, heart disease and chronic pain. We will support the networks to become self-sustaining, to offer long-term support to people affected by health issues and to make changes to health systems to improve access  - achieving ongoing benefits for the whole community.

The work is being piloted in two areas in the city - with high levels of health inequality and with poorer access to the city centre: the East Brighton and Hangleton & Knoll wards. There will be a focus on communities disproportionately affected by the Covid pandemic, including people with learning disabilities and people Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities

The first condition based peer group in partnership with Wellsbourne is starting in Whitehawk Inn for people diagnosed with or at risk of diabetes. Pop along or contact Claire to find out more.

 

A partnership has been created to deliver Health for All  – including Wellsbourne Healthcare CIC, Benfield Valley Healthcare Hub, Hangleton & Knoll Project, Speak Out and TDC –  who are the lead partner.

With many thanks to NHS Charities Together for supporting this work.
