The Trust in the news

09 April 2020

We’re pleased to share some recent news pieces, shining a light on the work of People’s Health Trust and some of the fantastic projects we fund.

  •  Positive News featured the Trust in regards to the Marmot Review Ten Years On, and the case studies we submitted featuring our funded partners.

Due to the Coronavirus, many of our funded partners have been adapting their projects in order to keep the vital services they provide continuing for their local communities, and have been featured in the news.

  • The Manchester Evening News featured Headspace Bolton, a project which provides stand-up comedy training sessions led by comedy professionals for people with experience of mental health issues.  Instead of meeting physically, the group has hosted sketch writing and comedy sessions over Skype and Zoom, so everyone can still connect and join in from home.
  • The Newcastle Evening Chronicle featured Headway Wearside, which is a project that provides support for people with acquired brain injuries. Headway Wearside has set up a remote art project involving a range of activities including art-based therapies including craft and cookery sessions
  • The Mirror also featured Headspace Bolton, as well as EFA London, which provides ESOL lessons for refugees and migrants in East London and The Voice cLoud. EFA London have continued their language lessons over WhatsApp and Skype and The Voice cLoud have moved their choir sessions online through Facebook Live.
