Health & Wellbeing
Forward South Partnership is funded by the Public Health Agency to deliver a range of health and wellbeing initiatives across South Belfast.
This includes coordination of the South Belfast Health Forum and Drugs & Alcohol and Mental Health Subgroups; as well as a leading role in the Dementia Friendly South Belfast initiative. The Partnership also works with five other PHA funded organisations to deliver the South Belfast Development Fund programme which includes annual events promoting healthy lifestyles for children and older people.
In Belvoir, our Community Health Capacity Worker delivers a range of health programmes in the local area with a focus on supporting the development of Belvoir Community Hub. The Partnership also works with BHSCT and community partners to coordinate and deliver the South Belfast Community Response Plan to death by suicide.
