Community Development Initiative for Downham

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.
