Cultural competence describes a set of aligned and transparent skills, attitudes and principles that acknowledge, respect and work together as a system towards optimal interactions between individuals and the various cultural and ethnic groups within a community.
Our work on cultural competence began when local communities and those impacted by the Grenfell Tower fire shared with us their experiences, concerns and views on how services could be made more culturally relevant.
We have several bespoke courses delivered by expert trainers to help you acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to work effectively in cross cultural settings. The learning is delivered face to face and is designed to be highly inter-active.
Dr Meena Nathan, a GP in North Kensington and Krishna Sarda, Head of Engagement for the NKR team, advise on developing a greater cultural awareness in general practice after working in partnership with the Grenfell community.
