Description

Community Health Matters

A community delivered engagement project in Nottingham focusing on Eastern European and African communities.

Commissioning by NHS Nottingham City CCG in partnership with Nottingham Equals, Nottingham City Council, Singposting for Polish Success and 11 Tech 18 and delivered by Signposting for Polish Success and 11 Tech 18.

During 2018 Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group has been working with local community organisations to engage with people from Eastern European and African communities. The Community Health Matters project has trained 23 volunteers from a wide range of nationalities to talk to people in their own communities on behalf of the CCGs. The Clinical Commissioning Group, along with their partners are now hosting a celebration and learning event on the project and we would like to invite local health and care staff and clinicians to attend, to hear the findings and recommendations of the project and meet some of the community volunteers who have helped to deliver it.

The event will share some of the key insights and findings from the project and identify ways to work with the community volunteers to improve understanding of local health services and to promote a better understanding of the experiences of new arrival communities in accessing services.

The engagement has been led by Signpost to Polish Success and 11 Tech 18, community organisations based in Nottingham. Each of these organisations has taken a lead in recruiting and supporting volunteers to engage within their own communities.
