Refugee Action Kingston has acquired some much needed additional space, on the ground floor of Siddeley House.
Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers who came in last Saturday to give the room a fresh coat of paint.
After a supreme team effort we were ready and waiting for our first clients to join us for the Wednesday morning drop-in.
We collaborated with RBK Community Development Team, Public Health and NHS to run a Health Day for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.
The sessions promoted services around sexual health, early maternity care, access to primary care and immunisations/vaccinations. We also included information and had professionals attend from other areas such as physical health/well being and early years services.
All 45 clients said they felt more confident to engage with local health services
45 people attended and 39 had chest x rays for Find & Treat. Find&Treat are a specialist outreach team that work alongside over 200 NHS and third sector front-line services to tackle TB http://bit.ly/1wlooce
The sun shone, the event was well organised and inspiring, we raised £1,696 (to be matched funded) and our clients enjoyed their day as well.
Well done RAK walking team, led by Sanja Djeric Kane, who was joined by some of our clients,volunteers, staff and our newest supporter a Minion. Thankyou to everyone who supported RAK. It was great to be part of this wonderful event organised by Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association.
