Inclusion Health Event

Suzi and Denise joined experienced and expert colleagues from across Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care System (ICS) for presentations and the opportunity for in-depth conversations and Q&As about Inclusion Health. Inclusion health is a term used to describe people who are socially excluded, typically experience multiple overlapping risk factors for poor health (such as poverty, violence, and complex trauma), experience stigma and discrimination, and are not consistently accounted for in electronic records (such as healthcare databases). These experiences frequently lead to barriers in access to healthcare and extremely poor health outcomes. Suzi gave a presentation about the work of The Magdalene Group. The event was well attended with delegates attending in person and online.

Ahead of Trustees Week………..

Now in its 12th year, Trustees’ Week - 7th - 11th November - is a chance for everyone to come together and mark the amazing achievements of the hundreds of thousands of volunteer trustees who run charities in England and Wales. It is about taking a moment to shine a light on trustees, about saying thank you to those who serve their communities and the causes they care for. And it is about encouraging more people to consider what they might be able to offer as a charity trustee, and what they might gain from the experience. We support Trustees' Week, & would like to pass on our sincerest thanks to our lovely trustees - Georgie, Nick, Caroline, Rowland, Lucy & Ngozi - for all they do to support us at The Magdalene Group. Thank you is never enough.
