Thank you to People’s Health Trust
This generous funding has supported the development of resident led activities in communities which experience inequalities in health.
Our work together focusses on developing strong social connections within communities, as a foundation for improving health and wellbeing and bringing residents together to influence what happens in their neighbourhoods.
People's Health Trust is an independent charity investing in local neighbourhoods to help create a society without health inequalities. It works closely with each of the regional and country lotteries raising money through The Health Lottery and distributes grants.
Local People Programme 2015-2021
Royal Voluntary Service and People’s Health Trust worked together to increase social connections and the amount of control people have over their lives and their communities, in order to improve health and wellbeing.
"It is making me more physically active, 18 months ago I was hardly walking and now I am moving about much more. I also didn’t like speaking up in front of people but now I don’t think twice about it. I am happier to put my point of view across, even if it’s different to someone else’s. I’ve made a great social network and enjoy being so busy."
