Join us in supporting our community.
Empowerment is an important aspect of EEC as this is a major platform in reaching communities and having interactions that are beneficial to the families of children and youth living with disabilities.We have a strong partnership with external stakeholders, local authorities, local infrastructure organisations, and faith groups. To date, EEC has been working with grassroots leaders to disseminate COVID-19 messages, by campaigning the benefit of the vaccines, running focus groups and information days at local levels, hold early start for pregnant women and wellbeing sessions.
We provide a number of services in order to acheve our goal.
Below are some of the services that we offer
We partner with local authorities and strategic community groups to ensure that we align well with other services. Our formal partnerships include:
Health inequalities are avoidable gaps between the healthiest and least healthy people and communities in our city. So many ethnic minorities fared worse during the pandemic because of existing inequalities.The pandemic also exposed the added barriers to good health that some communities face as a result of prejudice and discrimination. Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, as well as Disabled People, were disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
Our community outreach includes information events, refugee/Asylum information day, Manchester parade day, African Day and school career days. There is a strong partnership with external stakeholders, local authorities, local infrastructure organisations, and faith groups.
