In March 2018 the Public Health team at Southwark Council commissioned Community Southwark to work with them to engage faith communities on how they can create stronger connections with health professionals to promote positive health messages.
The aim of the work was to:
- Stimulate more conversations with faith groups on how we can work together to support healthier communities
- To award a number of small challenge grants to faith groups test approaches of working with health professionals to impact on health outcomes
- To create an online resource for faith leaders that would help them feel better equipped to promote positive health and wellbeing.
