We produce an annual publication highlighting the contribution local community groups make when it comes to health and wellbeing. We're planning the next edition, and your group could be included.

The voluntary sector makes an important contribution towards improving health and wellbeing of residents in Redbridge. We want to promote the work done by the local community and voluntary sector to NHS health commissioners, local GPs, Public Health and the Local Authority. So as to do this, for several years we have compiled a document called ‘Our Health in Our Hands’ – a compilation of case studies on voluntary groups in Redbridge that promote health and wellbeing or provide health services to Redbridge residents. These reports have been disseminated to the Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group, which is made up of all the GP practices in Redbridge, and is now in charge of much of the NHS budget in Redbridge, as well as GPs and various departments within the Local Authority. We have published five editions of Our Health in Our Hands so far, and planning to do our next one in coming months.

If your community group is involved in health and wellbeing related activities in Redbridge and you would like us to include a case study for your organisation to the sixth edition, please get in touch with Swati Vyas, Health Partnerships Manager via email or phone 020 3874 4133.
