Context in Tower Hamlets
Tower Hamlets is one of the most culturally diverse, materially deprived boroughs in the country, with health outcomes poorer than most of the rest of the country. There is a diverse faith community and a thriving network of voluntary sector initiatives across the borough. Tower Hamlets is also an NHS Vanguard site, bringing new opportunities to test new models of working and build new partnerships for good health outcomes. This session will cover the specific context in Tower Hamlets to introduce the day.
Identifying need and opportunities
What are the areas of need in terms of health, from perspective of faith organisations, VCS organisations, and other partners including the statutory sector?
What are the opportunities for partnership and good practice?
Potential actions: what could we do in our organisations and communities?
Attendees are welcome to join for one or both sessions (if you're attending for the afternoon session only please join us at 12.45pm for lunch!).
A full programme will be uploaded in the coming days.
