Reach Community Health Project
Healthy Hearts and Minds

This project will be a BME women’s group. Each month a theme will be covered relating to good heart health and fun workshops and quizzes carried out. The women will be encouraged to lead a more active lifestyle via partnership working with Govanhill community health walks and REACH’s existing keep fit sessions will be promoted and women encouraged to sign up and join in. It is hoped that crèche facilities can be secured to enable women to come to the fortnightly group and a keep fit session once a week

Culturally Sensitive Services
In response to the major health inequalities faced by BME communities living in Glasgow, REACH provides a broad based, integrated health service programme. In partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Primary Care Division, we have developed a Community Health Clinic that offers preventative health promotion information and comprehensive clinical advice to individuals from the BME community. Moreover, REACH’s service delivery is sensitive to issues of ethnicity, race, and religion/faith.

In addition to producing community led studies into BME health needs and barriers, REACH
Training and Development Unit
As a central part of our social entrepreneurial strategy, REACH's Training and Development Unit attempts to bridge the gap between BME communities and health service providers. REACH is committed to developing and delivering training solutions to improve health and social care service provision for BME communities in Scotland. Training is available to organisations working for and with BME communities in Scotland within the mainstream, voluntary and private sectors.
