2 New Neighbourhood Health Workers
We've got 2 new Neighbourhood Health Workers joining the team this month!
Nico started on Monday 5th October and will be covering the neighbourhoods of Ardwick and Longsight, and Charlee will be starting on Monday 19th October, covering Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall neighbourhoods.
Nico and Charlee will be joining the rest of buzz’s Neighbourhood Health Workers, focussing on community development to increase the involvement of local people in improving their own wellbeing. By talking to local residents and getting to know them, they are able to find out what health and wellbeing initiatives people would like to see in their neighbourhoods and to support them in making them happen.
Neighbourhood Health Workers also support existing networks, partnerships and outreach projects focussing on health and wellbeing. Examples of some of these networks and partnerships include Age Friendly Manchester, Start Well Develop Well, and a wide range of neighbourhood workers including those from Manchester City Council.
