Tackling health inequalities

Health Lottery South West exists to tackle health inequalities across the South West. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities its region. It does this by running a society lottery and working collaboratively with independent charity, People's Health Trust, to develop local interventions.

We donate the good causes funds we raise to People's Health Trust, who invests these in communities wishing to make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.

This grant making trust funds local people who have great ideas about how they can make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.

This two year project will develop an existing service, providing weekly dance sessions for young people with disabilities, and their siblings and friends in Plymouth. The development will ensure participants can enjoy the health and social benefits of belonging to a dance group, build their confidence as they demonstrate their abilities through their performances and be part of a group which is inclusive of young people with and without disabilities. Young people are able to shape and develop the project through participating in a youth steering group.

 

Paula Hocking from Wheelfever Dance Projects says: " Thanks to this funding we can provide weekly dance sessions for disabled young people, their siblings and friends in Plymouth".
