After the Pilot Project in 2013, DWICA was successful in receiving a grant from The Peoples Health Trust for a 2 year period, for the development, delivery and management of a range of health and wellbeing activities for the elderly BME communities in Derby.
Healthy Active Lives
In 2016 the Project was extended for another 2 years, addressing health inequalities by facilitating/delivering a range of health/socialisation activities to reduce social isolation and increase physical activity amongst the elderly. Our aim is to encourage the elderly to live “Healthy Active Lives”.
Regular health events are held with the help of ‘Health Promoters’ who are a group of like-minded people who assist with the planning and organising. Come and join DWICA Health Promoters. Please contact Nezrine Hudson (01332 371529) for further information.
