Healthwatch North Lincolnshire engage with the local BME community

26/11/2014

Healthwatch North Lincolnshire have successfully engaged with the local BME community around general experiences of health and social care and more specifically dementia.

In collaboration with Alzheimer’s Society, Healthwatch provided the Sikh community with a better understanding of dementia and how to access dementia support services. Fourteen dementia champions from the BME community were recruited to raise awareness of dementia in their local community.

Healthwatch established local BME ladies group VNEWS, to give women a voice without fear of discrimination or intimidation, in partnership with Humberside Police. Healthwatch hosted a celebratory event attended by over two hundred women and children. Their views were gathered on general experiences of local health and social care services.
