05 February 2012

Three projects in South West London have been awarded funding by the People’s Health Trust

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

Through the Healthy Places Healthy People grants programme, the People’s Health Trust is working with HealthFreedom society lottery to fund 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.

Three projects in South West London have been awarded funding by the People’s Health Trust.

  • Funding of £31,030 has been awarded to Mencap to set up an Active Gateway Centre in Merton. The aim of these centres will be to improve health and wellbeing of people with a learning disability. The centres will support them to develop new skills and, for some, it will help them to get out and about and to live a more enriched and active life.
  • Funding of £44,069 has been awarded to the School Food Trust to work with young people aged 14-19 and their families, and young people with special educational needs to set up their own community-based healthy cooking club, working with up to 1,000 people in the area over the next year.
  • Funding of £46,801 has been awarded to the PRTC’s Wandsworth Carers Centre that supports older carers to look after their own health and wellbeing, and better cope in their caring role.
