Tackling health inequalities

HealthTogether Community Interest Company (CIC) exists to tackle health inequalities across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities in the area. 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.

Khaas

Khaas in Bristol were awarded £36,858 to provide a core cohort of 25 women of south Asian origin, who care for children with disabilities with a series of weekly cooking, health and hygiene sessions to provide them with an opportunity to socialise and meet other carers, to provide respite from their caring responsibilities and to help them to improve their diet and the diets of their families.
