Tower Hamlets Faith Health Action Partnership

Churches Health Action Partnership

We have been funded by Tower Hamlets Public Health to work with Black African churches in the borough to provide support for local communities during the cost of living crisis and the recovery from the pandemic.

We are working with Christ Apostolic Church, Pilgrim’s  Tabernacle, RCCG Jubilee Hall and Newham African Caribbean Centre.  These groups are proving a friendly warm space that is open to whole community, alongside health awareness sessions, fitness, trips, refreshments and activities. 

The project is supported by Tower Hamlets Inter Faith Forum.  Our engagement coordinators are working closely with the faith leaders to help start, maintain and evaluate the work of the projects, which are providing vital benefits to local people.
