The Brighter Partnership

The Brighter Partnership will reach out to those who live, work or socialise in Wandsworth by offering free heath checks at drop-in sessions across the borough. Health checks take 20 minutes and will look at your blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI) and your HIV status using a 60 second finger prick test. We will advise you on achievable lifestyle alternatives that will help to keep you healthy.

We will be offering outreach services in the community and will work with individuals to explore ways of achieving an increased feeling of wellbeing through positive lifestyle choices. If extra support is required we can also offer life coaching sessions.

The Brighter Partnership welcomes all sections of the community to use our services regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religious background, ethnicity or immigration status. Our services are strictly confidential and run by non-judgemental staff.
