Last few days to apply to become a Health Partner
The deadline for applications to become a Health Partner is fast approaching so West London CCG is encouraging all those who were thinking of applying to do so.
Applications are welcomed from the voluntary, community and faith sectors as well as resident associations. The deadline for applications is 5pm on 17 February 2020.
The work of the Health Partners will be determined by the health needs of the different communities in North Kensington and informed by what the data and evidence tells us.
This means there could be a focus on physical health needs such as diabetes, obesity or hypertension or emotional and mental health needs such as depression. There will be a range of benefits in becoming a Health Partner including training and development, support from health professionals to develop projects and work that will help build community resilience in North Kensington. The role a partner plays can be discussed and mutually agreed.
To become a Health Partner, an organisation will need to be a registered charity, voluntary or community group, social enterprise or community interest company, or registered social landlord. They will also need to meet certain criteria such as having a safeguarding policy and a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The CCG will support and advise any organisation who wish to become a Health Partner and does not currently meet that criteria to enable them to do so.
