Welcome to HealthProm

HealthProm is a UK-based charity which works to ensure vulnerable children have the best start in life. By vulnerable, we mean those children whose physical, emotional, cognitive and social development is held back because of poverty, social exclusion or disability.

We focus on supporting the most vulnerable children in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Afghanistan. We support them through strengthening families and communities, increasing access to health and social services, and promoting access to education. We work with and through local partner organisations.
