We Belong Here Project
People’s Health Trust is funded
through 51 society lotteries, each designed to raise money to address health
inequalities in a separate part of England, Scotland and Wales. The society
lotteries operate through The Health Lottery.
Each society lottery donates its good
cause money to People’s Health Trust. The money is restricted for spending
in specific areas of Great Britain.
People’s Health Trust believes in a
society without health inequalities. This organisation works to ensure that
where you live does not unfairly reduce the length of your life, or the
quality of your health.
People’s Health Trust do this by
investing in people with great ideas to create fairer places to grow, live,
work and age. This organisation believes in funding ideas which are small
and local and are genuinely designed and led by local people. People’s
Health Trust targets their funds in neighbourhoods which are the greatest to
be affected by health inequalities.
People who live in poorer
neighbourhoods die, on average, seven years younger and spend 17 years more
with a disability, than people from more affluent neighbourhoods.
People’s Health Trust has funded Henna
Asian Women’s Group to provide a new project called ‘We Belong Here’. This
project welcomes residents that reside in the following estates and streets
that are located close to these estates:
Specific part of Belsize Rd (Please check with Raf for eligibility)
Specific part of Abbey Rd (Please check with Raf for eligibility)
People’s Health Trust believe that the
people that reside within these estates have many health inequalities – to
determine a better lifestyle this project has been funded. We believe that
people that reside in these estates have lack of communication with the
outside world. They are restricted in going out and communicating with other
like-minded individuals. We want to provide this project for these people as
it would help them derive relationships and make friends. It will help in
reducing isolation and make them feel that they belong somewhere. This
project is on-going for the next two years beginning 2014. We will be
providing weekly Arts & Crafts sessions alongside fortnightly massage and
meditation classes. If you feel you are within the specific streets or
estates quoted please contact Raf for further information.
