Afri Healthwise

slogan here.......

The project aimed at improving the health and well-being of African communities in East Kent, by raising awareness of the benefits of making healthier food and lifestyle choices. It used community champions from the African communities to hold conversations and organise workshops as well as work with individuals and families to promote the importance of good nutrition in fighting infections like COVID, diabetes as well as raising awareness of type 2 diabetes, obesity and services available in a way that is culturally appropriate. The project worked closely with NHS weight loss  programme to increase uptake through referrals.

Through this programme, the communities benefited from:

  • Knowing about good nutrition and lifestyle
  • building social support networks
  • knowing what Type 2 diabetes is, who is at risk, signs and symptoms, myths and misconceptions, complications, and the NHS services that are available
  • being confident in making decisions about what they are buying and eating and how to make healthy meals.
  • being able to incorporate exercise in their daily life.
