• What is HAREF

    HAREF - part of Newcastle CVS Support and Development team, is a network of people across communities, organisations and sectors, working together to reduce health inequalities linked to ethnicity and culture. HAREF has achieved a lot through collaboration that has remained strong over more than ten years. We are committed to improving the quality of life of everyone in the diverse community of Newcastle and Gateshead.
