At Citizens Advice Reigate & Banstead our purpose is to provide free, independent, impartial advice to people in need, whoever they are, whatever their problem.
So we’re delighted to receive a new Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise health inclusion award.
The Inclusion Health Quality Benchmark recognises organisations for their work with ‘inclusion health groups’ – those that experience the poorest health outcomes and life expectancy. Among them are four groups particularly vulnerable to health inequalities: sex workers, vulnerable migrants, homeless people, gypsies and travellers.
The award, launched this month, was developed by members of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance* led by Friends, Families and Travellers (FFT) who offered us their congratulations……
Congrats to @ReigateandBCAB who were one of the first organisations to receive the Inclusion Health benchmark from our new Inclusion Health audit tool for their brilliant engagement with Inclusion health groups! Check out the tool here: https://t.co/F0qmS3YPxg #HWAlliance
