On Saturday 30 September, the South Notts Place-Based Partnership, Gedling Borough Council, Positively Empowered Kids and other local partners hosted a fun day in Killisick for local families.
It was a fabulous day, with something for everyone, adults and children alike, with a smoothie bike, hand massages, cake stalls, jewellery, Inflatable slide, skateboarding, face painting, arts and crafts, blood pressure checks, local GPs (pictured below) providing health advice and much more!
Our Clinical Lead Gill and Programme Director Helen particularly enjoyed potting plants – they reported that it was ‘very therapeutic’.
Killisick, in Geding, is one of the five pilot areas in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham to be funded through the NHSEI Prevention Programme to promote happy and healthy communities in areas where the greatest health inequalities exist.
The project has taken a community engagement approach to ensure purposeful and sustained approaches to tackle health inequalities through co-production
From the beginning we have taken a collaborative approach to community engagement involving partners from a range of organisations with an active interest in the Killisick area. Partners include representatives from Gedling Borough Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Active Notts, Newark and Sherwood CVS and other local organisations.
Residents and stakeholders have been working with partners over the last 12 months to shape long term sustainable solutions which will have a positive impact on residents’ future health and wellbeing. If you would like to share your experiences then please contact email@example.com
