Annual Review and Annual Accounts

Read our new Annual Review

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Annual Review.

Working with local people in the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods to improve health has remained the focus of our work over the last year. Up to September 2019, over 3,000 local projects have been funded and 523,000 people have been supported.

It is always great to hear the voices of local people throughout the Annual Review. Stories of people using their skills and wisdom to make things even better locally. This is about people doing great things in their neighbourhoods.

Some are straightforward, others are innovative: the common ground is that they are local people’s ideas to address aspects of local life they would like to change.

Our evaluations show that when local people are in control, it has a real impact. This, however, is bitter-sweet. So much skill and good work locally and yet health inequalities in Great Britain remain stark. Life expectancy is stalling in the UK for the first time since records began and, in some cases, people are dying younger.

To make a real impact and ensure that we start closing the widening health gap, we need a concerted effort, including brave policies and strong cross-sector partnerships which place local people at the heart of decisions that affect them. Through our new strategic plan, we will continue to work with local people and we will welcome the formation of new partnerships to both work with and influence policy and decision-makers locally and nationally.

I hope you enjoy reading this year’s Annual Review and I look forward to working with you in the year ahead.


Best wishes,

John Hume
