The Health & Wellbeing Forum is a collaborative partnership among the third sector organisations in Tower Hamlets that aims to improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities for residents in the borough.

The forum aims both to empower communities to engage effectively in debate with the health services and to enable statutory services and health professionals to hear, understand and respond adequately to the health needs of the communities, which the members of the forum meaningfully engage with and provide services to. The forum is managed by a steering group elected from its membership.

Representatives from third sector organisations in Tower Hamlets are welcome to attend and be a part of the forum.

For more information or if you wish to become a forum member please contact Alison Robert at THCVS on 020 8980 8427
