“The BME Health & Wellbeing Event was a very useful and informative event about different health issues e.g. stress, bad sleep, exercise and blood pressure.”

Croydon BME Forum has been very helpful to myself and others of all ages, races, religions and backgrounds. It’s an interactive forum with training facilities and puts on events that are informative and affective to the BME community.
