The Peel Project host their Annual Community Health Fair
The Peel Project are hosting their Annual Community Health Fair on Wednesday 23 August, in partnership with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind and Hull City Council. The fair provides a place where the community can get useful information, receive health screenings, and interact with health care professionals. It allows the wider community to meet and discuss a range of health needs with local providers in areas.
Our Get Out Get Active (GOGA) partner, Active Humber, are supporting the Peel Project through the programme. With GOGA’s support the project will help to bring least inactive disabled and non-disabled people together through physical activity.
The Peel Project carries out activities which benefit the community in Hull. By starting with grass level youth work and community work around fitness and wellbeing they have increased their capacity and impact.
The focus of their work is with deprived areas, those who are new to UK, and those who do not speak English as a first language and need support and education.
Last year’s event at Peel Street Park had a theme of ‘building communities’ and saw the celebration of the community hub opening. The event was attended by councillors, representatives from public services and our service delivery partners.
This year’s event will set the focus on health inequalities and help partners to get involved and support the work. The purpose of this community health fair is to help individuals be healthier by engaging people in conversation about common health issues and concerns.
