Funding boost for health and wellbeing projects across Warwickshire

Leamington Editorial 30th Mar, 2019   0

A FUNDING boost will help a number of projects to improve residents’ health and wellbeing in Warwickshire.

The South Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Partnership has provided nearly £80,000 to ten projects which will support a variety of vulnerable groups.

The schemes include training young people in mental health first aid, supporting people living with dementia and their carers and encouraging outdoor activities.

They are based on the health and wellbeing issues identified in recent assessments carried out by Warwickshire County Council (WCC) which included promoting mental health and wellbeing, particularly among men, parents, children and young people.

WCC health spokesman Coun Les Caborn said: “Watching projects grow and develop, offering hope and change for individuals in our local communities is a real privilege. We look forward to working with these projects and seeing the changes over the forthcoming year.”
