It is important that women from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as well as refugees and asylum seekers, have access to the right information and care that they deserve.
These women are often blocked from this due to a number of reasons such as language barriers, lack of local information, cultural and religious boundaries.
JAN Trust educates these women on prevalent health issues. Such issues include obesity, diabetes, cancer, blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, anaemia and pregnancy.
We run a range of activities to promote healthy eating and exercise. These include:
- Chair exercises
- Weight-loss programmes
- Health workshops
- Healthy cookery classes
"Thanks to all at JAN Trust, they have made me aware of health issues that I did not know of. I have been able to pass this learning and knowledge onto my friends and family."
