National AHP Day, Thursday 14 October - join the AHP Careers Ambassadors for the Multi-Media Project Launch on Teams online, from 1.00pm - 2.00pm

Join Teams online here.

Across North East London Health and Care Partnership (NEL) we know we need to enable more opportunities for our local people to grow into health and care careers.

Our NEL BAME Allied Health Professionals1 (AHPs) Career Ambassadors project will be the focus for our celebrations on National AHP Day with the launch of our new multi-media campaign.

Our vibrant group of Career Ambassadors are a growing social movement. They have created a range of short films that tell their own stories of growing up, living and working as AHPs in North East London.

With the help of Wood Street Walls they have also created an AHP inspired community mural in Waltham Forest. All AHPs, multi-professional staff and service users are very welcome to come along to this celebratory launch event on MS Teams.

Come along and hear how we are working to inspire, energise and attract our young people. Help us consider further how we can remove barriers or stigma to enable them to become our NEL Allied Health Professionals of the future!
