Tackling health inequalities

Health inequalities refer to differences in the extent to which groups of people experience health problems, access health services and how long they live.

Money raised by HealthImprove CIC will be given as grants directly to health causes in our community. Grants will be made by the People’s Health Trust, a registered charity that works specifically with HealthImprove CIC to distribute money to good causes in our region.

We work alongside the People’s Health Trust within our area to help identify charities and good causes that will benefit from direct financial support.

We’re looking for those causes where the money can have the most immediate and beneficial impact. We target funds towards work that supports groups or communities that experience or are likely to experience poorer than average health or wellbeing and shorter than average life expectancy. The aim is to fund projects which give people longer healthier lives.

Visit our funded projects page to see the type of projects that we are supporting.

Most importantly though, we want to work with the local communities themselves so we can accurately prioritise what our communities need most.

To that end we’ll be developing a range of initiatives with our local media announce when funding is available so that local organisations can make contact and apply for support.
