We are working in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, The Hangleton & Knoll Project and Sussex Interpreting services to host the event. Building on the success of previous years, this will be the 6th wellbeing event aimed specifically at black and minority ethnic residents of Brighton & Hove.
Attendees will have the chance to connect with community groups and service providers offering help and support to improve physical and mental health and wellbeing. At the family-friendly event there will also be opportunities to take part in a variety of activities such as gentle physical exercise and singing.
Information will also be on hand about employment, volunteering, benefits, English classes, healthy lifestyle and much more.
No booking is required and the event is open to all minority ethnic residents. Refreshments and activities will be provided free of charge and Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Farsi, Portuguese and Turkish interpreters will be on hand throughout the day. Thanks to a generous donation from Brighton and Hove Bus Company, free bus tickets are available to anyone travelling by bus to the event.
Community Development Worker Ratna Jan Bibi, who is coordinating the event, said “Over 400 people came to last year’s event, which saw a huge diversity of people come to learn more about how to take control of their own health and wellbeing. As well as people being able to gather practical information and engage in serious conversations about their health, it was also a lot of fun – we had singing, dancing and delicious Caribbean, Chinese and Indian food. We hope this year’s event will be even bigger and better.”
