Who We Are
We are a group of professionals that work in healthcare and education and recognise the importance of a collaborative approach to improving health and educational outcomes.
Health Pioneers was founded in 2020 to address the significant health and education inequalities that exist. This became an urgent matter due to COVID-19 amplifying these issues. At the core of the charity is the belief in empowerment, rather than paternalism, and that young people can create innovative ideas and solutions if provided with resources.
Our mission is to empower the young people of East London to shape, and improve, the health of their communities.
We will achieve this by developing a range of projects for students, educators and healthcare professionals. By sharing knowledge and curating ideas, we will find pioneering solutions. The impact of these solutions will spread amongst the students’ peers and traverse up through the generations. As our Pioneers grow older, these solutions will then filter down through the generations. Overall, the health and educational outcomes of East London will improve.
