Event To Improve Wellbeing Of Brighton’s Minority Ethnic Community


A community event is being held by local charity TDC which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of Brighton’s minority ethnic residents.

Supported by Brighton & Hove City Council and the local CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) the “A Way A Day” event will take place between 10.30am and 2.30pm on Wednesday 18th April at BMECP (Black and Minority Ethnic Community Partnership).

Local community development charity, the Trust for Developing Communities will host the annual, family-friendly event in partnership with the Hangleton & Knoll Project, Sussex Interpreting Services and domestic abuse charity Rise.

On the day, attendees will have the chance to take part in a variety of activities including arts and craft, singing, games and gentle physical exercise. Engaging with service providers, attendees will learn how to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Connecting with groups and organisations, attendees will be directed towards help and support around employment, volunteering, benefit advice, English classes, healthy lifestyle and much more. No booking is required and the event is open to all minority ethnic residents with refreshments and activities being provided free of charge.

Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Portuguese, Russian and Turkish interpreters will be available on the day.

Community Development Worker Ratna Jan Bibi, who is coordinating the event, said “Brighton’s minority ethnic residents enhance the rich cultural diversity of our city and by removing barriers to participation we can help promote community cohesion.

“A Way A Day is an opportunity to connect and showcase service providers and minority ethnic groups, all of whom are instrumental in supporting and improving the wellbeing of our community. Come along and take part, connect and socialise in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.’’

A Way A Day will take place from 10.30am to 2.30pm on Wednesday 18th April at BMECP, 10A Fleet Street, Brighton, BN1 4ZE. For further information contact Ratna Jan Bibi on ratnajanbibi@trustdevcom.org.uk or 07445 183 142.
