Positive Action Blog October 2021

Our recent community ambassador training saw a huge cohort of 21 new recruits take part, with some already making a great impact in their communities. This month we have had great support from Lucky and the members of the African Caribbean Community North East (ACCANE) who attended our community ambassador training, lifesaving skills training and recruitment workshop events in large numbers. It is great to have support from community groups and by spreading awareness we will help bridge the health inequalities in our region.

ACCANE provides a community hub in Sunderland that connects communities and is instrumental in empowerment projects. Lucky told us that this project ‘will help empower’ members of his community and help educate people on key lifesaving skills.october blog

I also attended the Sunderland Bangladeshi International Centre to take part in their BAME community health event that saw a range of health and wellbeing organisations come together to network and discuss health issues that the communities face. It was a brilliant event and I was glad to be supported by Hana, one of our community ambassadors.

If you have an event coming up in your community or would like to know more about the project, get in touch by emailing                               loveness. scott@neas.nhs.uk
