Covid 19 and the Health and wellbeing of BAME communities

What?

Covid-19 is disproportionately affecting the health and wellbeing of people from the BAME communities.

Recent government and health reports have highlighted that Covid-19 is disproportionately affecting the health and wellbeing of people from the BAME communities.

You have an opportunity to learn more about the reasons why and to get key health information, by listening to and putting questions to experts about your health, care and wellbeing.

The seminars have been prepared by Dudley Council’s Public Health, working together with Transforming Communities Together and Cornerstone Community Church, to help BAME communities live longer, safe and healthier lives.

TCT Modern Slavery Awareness Training

What?

Modern Slavery awareness for churches and the community. Everyone welcome!

Modern Slavery is present in every major town and city.

We want to create a communities that are safe for all and where everyone can thrive and flourish.

To do this, we need to equip churches, faith groups, charities and residents to know how to recognise Modern Slavery in their community and how to respond, in a way that safeguards them and those exploited by this horrific crime.

This training will be led by Debbie Huxton. She is a Modern Slavery Campaigner, employed by Transforming Communities Together and funded by Lichfield Diocese Mothers’ Union in partnership with the Clewer Initiative.

With lockdown, many people are supporting their communities more than ever, but who is supporting them??

With lockdown, many people are supporting their communities more than ever, but who is supporting them??

What?

At TCT, our first value is the need to listen. We have heard how hard those from churches, charities and other faith groups are working to support those in the community. As Lockdown continues, we wanted to invest in those leaders and volunteers who are doing so much to support people.

We are therefore trialling theses lunchtime get togethers for peer support.

We will start with a biblical reflection, have a chance to share with one another (normally around a specific topic) and then end with some biblical guided relaxation.

Anyone is welcome to join us, but we are using Eventbrite to ensure it is a safe space for all attending.

Where?

Online via Zoom

When?

Every Monday lunchtime in July - 12:00 to 12:30
