Manor Gardens Health Advocacy Project

Manor Gardens Health Advocacy Service has been helping refugees and newly arrived migrants improve their health and wellbeing for many years. We work with over 3,000 people every year and together we speak over 30 languages.

We provide bilingual advocacy and support to help people access local health services and appropriate information.

We put on tailor-made workshops to help individuals and community groups learn about the issues which affect them, for example diabetes and immunisations.

All projects at Manor Gardens cover Camden except for FGM which is borough specific (call to check).
