Working together for health equalities

Posted on 7 April 2015

Following a strong focus on inequalities in health emerging from the HEAR 'Intersections' project last year, and HEAR involvement in the October 2014 health equalities event, the HEAR Network held a very successful event 'Working Together for Health Equalities' on 25 March at the Human Rights Action Centre.

More than 50 delegates heard presentations and case studies from 10 different London VCS organisations demonstrating how they tackle inequalities in health in a wide variety of innovative ways. They also heard an extremely informative keynote presentation from Lindsey Ahmet from Middlesex University and had the opportunity to attend workshops on improving communications in health delivery, learning from experience in forming consortia, partnerships, collaborative working and user involvement, and a very interesting storytelling session.
