Health information and supports

NICHE works in partnership with other organisation and individuals to organise information sessions on health topics of interest to people in the area.

NICHE provides assistance in understanding health services and can help and advice in situations when people are wondering where to go, who to speak to, or what to do next. We do this in a variety of different ways e.g explaining referral pathways, waiting lists, how to phrase letters or emails, or thinking through a conversation before making a phonecall or attending an appointment.

NICHE takes part in local promotion of National Cancer Screening Service (NCSS) through the Be Well Be Aware Community Screening Project. This involves hosting and providing information sessions to our own and other groups, taking part in training with the NCSS and improving awareness of screening programmes in innovative and creative ways. We have supported a number of local women to take part in peer advocacy training and these women participate in promotional work around the screening programmes.
