The Hindu Community Wellbeing Event was a huge success.
Over 120 people attended in total, and 19 health, social care and voluntary organisations were represented.
We were overwhelmed by the support offered by Milton Keynes Hindu Association, the professionals who gave up their Sunday to engage with this community, and the volunteers and interpreters who helped make this event such a success. It was great to be part of an event where the community, the health and social care sector and the voluntary sector were so willing to work collaboratively to offer advice and information to this community.
The event was also a great opportunity for building relationships and making new contacts, and we hope that this was just the beginning of our engagement with this community.
We received wonderful feedback on the day, both from members of the public and from stall holders. On behalf of Healthwatch, and all those who attended on the day, we would like to thank Milton Keynes Hindu Association for welcoming us so warmly into the community and providing a wonderful lunch.
