Inclusion Health: How does your organisation measure up and what can you do about it?
The concept of Inclusion Health is founded on the principle that not all people have access to the highest levels of healthcare. As a result, a number of socially excluded groups in the UK experience poor health outcomes across a range of indicators including self-reported health, life expectancy and morbidity.
VCSE organisations are important partners in work addressing health inequalities experienced by marginalised groups because they:
- have a wide reach into communities across the UK;
- have the system knowledge required to bridge Inclusion Health groups into services;
- have an important role in improving health and social outcomes in society as a whole.
An audit tool has been developed for VCSE organisations, which will help you to measure and benchmark your engagement with Inclusion Health groups. Once you have completed the audit tool, you will be provided with tailored guidance which will help your organisation to embed action on tackling health inequalities into its everyday activities.
Join in the webinar launch of the tool, so that you can hear more about it and have the knowledge and information to embed it into your organisational practices and share it with your members and networks.
It will be hosted by Sarah Sweeney and Zoe Matthews of Friends Families and Travellers, Caroline Bernard of Homeless Link and Ravi Jaipaul from Public Health England on the 29th May at 11:00am.
