The evidence base identifies five key areas of work that we need to work with our community and stakeholders to address. Within all of these health programmes there are distinct needs that we need to to tailor health prevention initiatives to affect change and improve outcomes.
All of the health programmes take in account intersectionality within the protected characteristics to deliver impact across generational groups. Much of our work is undertaken in partnership with Trusts, clinical commissioning groups, local authorities, faith communities and Voluntary sector organisations.
