Public Health & Community Engagement

Evidence from the COVID-19 pandemic supports our lived experience that the lack of targeted and culturally sensitive support for ACH communities has a negative effective on their health and well-being. SWIM works to raise health awareness, improve access to primary care support and bring about change by:

  • Encouraging people to take action to reduce risks prevalent in ACH communities – e.g. diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, glaucoma, smoking and sight impairment
  • Providing culturally sensitive advice and support (help with GP registration, signposting to primary care services).
  • Collating our insights into community-specific intelligence, which local authorities, clinical commissioning groups and primary care providers use to tailor their services to the needs of specific communities.

Peter’s positive attitude ensured he was extremely productive, helped with whatever was needed and remained proactive, ensuring the project was always progressing. Peter routinely sent updates to stakeholders at all levels. What stook out was that he made things simple to understand even when explaining quite complicated and intricate matters.

During our time working together Peter and his team led two service redesigns and oversaw the implementation of a new criminal justice service and a new Children & Young People’s service. In both instances, Peter was quick to grasp the strategic vision and translate it into a deliverable plan which he efficiently implemented, from inception to completion. What stood out about Peter were his values and his work ethic.
