fatima health initiative (fhi)

The Fatima Health Initiative is a community development health project which aims to tackle the high rates of ill-health within Fatima and the wider Rialto area and improve the holistic and spirit of the community.


Through a range of programmes the Fatima Health Initiative provides a space which allows local people an opportunity to put their own well being at the top of the agenda and deal with the stresses of day to day living.


The Fatima Health Initiative has a common understanding of the causes of poverty and its effect on the health of communities. The initiative works from the principles of participation, equality, belief in people’s ability to change and identify solutions, supporting individuals to participate in collective action on health.
