Local Society Lottery HealthCalm awards good causes money in Derbyshire

05 February 2012

Four projects in Derbyshire have been awarded local society lottery funding from the People’s Health Trust, the independent charity responsible for deciding where the health good causes money is most needed and spent

Communities across England, Scotland and Wales are starting to benefit from the £50 million a year from the good causes money raised by local society lotteries through the new Health Lottery.

Through the Healthy Places Healthy People grants programme, People’s Health Trust – the independent charity responsible for deciding where the good causes money raised by local lottery societies is spent – is funding activity to reduce isolation amongst older people, provide support for informal carers, particularly young adult carers, and support local projects that help create healthier environments and communities.
