BME Health

Tackling Health  Inequalities

The project has been established with a specific focus on improving the health and well-being for BME women. The physical, emotional and well-being of individuals can be promoted through community sports and healthier lifestyles campaigns. This approach will engage wider family participation through a BME sports programme, basketball, football, swimming classes will be just a few of the targeted health campaigns designed to tackle health inequalities. 

The captive audiences attending these sessions will also have an opportunity to address wider issues such as healthier life choices, dietary information, type 2 diabetes and healthy heart checks. It is envisaged at these sporting activities, women can also discuss, find out how to become actively engaged in employment, training and general access to service provision. Our approach to working with BME groups has been based around proven methodologies which have proven engagement with individuals often leads to a “holistic” offer of advice.

The Tees Valley Inclusion Project CIC will help and assist individuals with an information, advice and guidance service on a range of services available to them and working with local partners to meet gaps in mainstream health and well-being services.
