Derby County Community Trust are excited to be launching our Wellbeing For All programme – a health project funded by Macmillan Cancer Support which aims to encourage people to make healthy lifestyle choices that link to reducing the risk of developing cancer, specifically in BME communities.
The project aims to:
- Raise awareness and improve health literacy levels amongst BME and lower socio-economic groups around cancer signs and symptoms
- Develop community based wellbeing services which includes healthy eating, physical activity and weight loss
- Recruit, train and support community cancer health champions to support in a social movement campaign amongst their peers
Our first community based event will take place on 16th April, at the Indian Community Centre, Rawdon Street, DE23 6QR, from 10.30am. All members of the community are invited, as are those wanting to learn more about the programme and practitioners or health professionals.
The event will showcase the key points and aims of the project, signpost to further opportunities within the Trust and provide the chance to hear from participants who have already been a part of our Active Recovery programme and can provide first hand advice on the signs, symptoms and help available around cancer.
