Let’s Talk Care and Culture
Let’s Talk Care and Culture discussing barriers to accessing health services by diverse members of community, imagining new ways of engaging
This session is a hosted space for dialogue between members of community representing diverse ethnicities and nationalities, migrants and refugees with local health workers and people providing services in the area.
The aim of our meeting is to offer the safe space for community voices to be heard, to reimagine ways of working together for better access to health care. During the session we will look at what is, and why, and imagine what else is possible. The session’s content will then be used to produce localised resources for new members of the community.
