Wellbeing For All
Wellbeing For All is a Macmillan Cancer Support funded project which aims to tackle health inequalities in lower socio-economic and ethnically diverse communities that are particularly pertinent to the development of certain cancers.
The project aims to raise awareness around cancer signs and symptoms alongside promoting general health messaging within community settings.
We work with several community organisations to provide physical activity classes and host educational workshop on different risk factor, signs and symptoms.
Through using an innovative network including doctors’ surgeries, places of worship and local businesses we aim to reach people who may not be aware of the health inequalities they could face.
Partnership work with key stakeholders in these communities has allowed us to diversify our reach and set up unique events. These have included a Pop-Up Barber Shop aimed at increasing knowledge around prostate cancer, working with taxi firms to provide body MOTs for their drivers and launching exercise classes within community centres.
If you’re an individual or a community based organisation who would like to gain support from the project please use the form below to contact us.
