Get to know your Neighbourhood Health Worker!
Our Neighbourhood Health Workers work out in Manchester's communities 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 groups and projects people would like to see in their neighbourhoods and then support them in making them happen. Or if you're feeling a bit isolated and want to be more connected to people in your local neighbourhood, Neighbourhood Health Workers can connect you up with local groups where you'll make new some new friends!
Some examples of groups that have been set up include gardening groups, film club, clay craft project, Pop Up Percussion music sessions for babies and toddlers, community Christmas singalong, creative writing group, play reading group etc.
