Continuing our programme of activity for Black History Month, KECC were delighted to work in partnership with The Dartford Health Living Centre and Dartford Borough Council to deliver a fun and informative health and well-being event with a particular focus on sickle cell, diabetes and adult social care.

There was a variety of Jamaican and Nigerian food, along with performances by the Phase 5 Steel Band and some interactive arts and crafts workshops.

A number of key partners were in attendance including Darent Valley Hospital, Dartford Borough Council, Kent County Council and community partners including Rethink Sahayak.

The event was attended by Kent Equality Cohesion Council CO Gurvinder Sandher MBE DL, Sharon Philips Chief Officer Healthy Living Center Dartford and the Mayor of Dartford Councillor Rosanna Currans.
