John Hume, Chief Executive said “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.

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.”

Sue Cohen, Chair of the Trust said “Local people are voicing what is really important to them, and are taking action, as the case studies in this review demonstrate. But there is clearly so much more to do. The impact of austerity and the complex local contexts in which people are working means life is harder than ever for many people and our work more critical.”
