Downham Nutrition Partnership Registered charity 1100040 Company Number 04810528
The Healthy Downham project aims to develop a locally focussed, integrated, holistic, community-led approach that improves community health and well-being for those who live, work or learn in the area.
We aim to deliver the project, engaging and empowering people by:
inviting residents and service providers to explore the issues around healthy lifestyles
enabling residents and service providers to define what is needed to build and strengthen the determinants of good health and wellbeing in their communities
supporting residents and service providers in seeking creative and innovative ways to address these issues
helping individuals to acquire the skills, tools, knowledge, experience and confidence to take control of and improve their individual and collective health and well-being
The five 'strands' of the project are listed on the right. The Community Development Initiative for Downham is funded by Public Health Lewisham.
If you are a local resident or working in Downham and would like to get involved please contact us.
