Community Renewal has teamed up with The People’s Health Trust to deliver Local Conversations Projects in the communities of Bingham/Magdalene in South East Edinburgh, Muirhouse in North Edinburgh and Govanhill in Glasgow.
The People’s Health Trust would like to invest in Bingham/Magdalene and Muirhouse over 7 years to improve health and wellbeing of the people living there.
In Govanhill a similar investment is planned but with a specific focus on improving the wellbeing of the 3500 Roma immigrants that are housed within this neighbourhood.
From October 2015 to April 2016 we will be engaging the local populations in a listening process to identify their priorities for how to use the investment.
Local Conversations is a People’s Health Trust initiative which involves supporting residents to develop a shared vision for their community and take local action on issues that matter to them.
People’s Health Trust is an independent charity investing in local neighbourhoods to help create a society without health inequalities. It works closely with each of the regional and country lotteries raising money through The Health Lottery, and distributes grants: www.peopleshealthtrust.org.uk
