Towards Equality: Mary Seacole Award ‘Reach Out’ Project

It seems like yesterday when I and 5 other nurses were awarded the Mary Seacole Award. I can’t believe that its actually been a year. I started off this journey with a mixture of excitement and trepidation and found that everyone else who has embarked on this journey has felt the same.

The ‘Reach Out’ project used co-production to mobilise and arm a ‘hard to reach’ community with resources to promote health and wellbeing. This community is now sharing its learning via www.itsgoodtochat.com or @goodtochat on Twitter.

I have just completed the report on the ‘Reach Out’ project highlighting key findings and the benefits of engaging communities in health promotion:

I hope the report provides you with some food for thought and possible solutions should you wish to engage groups that don’t typically engage with you, in promoting health.
