We collaborated with RBK Community Development Team, Public Health and NHS to run a Health Day for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.

RAK health day NHS

The sessions promoted services around sexual health, early maternity care, access to primary care and immunisations/vaccinations.  We also included information and had professionals attend from other areas such as physical health/well being and early years services.

All 45 clients said they felt more confident to engage with local health services
