We recently awarded Blacon Health and Social Care Group a £500 grant to help combat a spate of bad health across the area.
The group was set up to improve the health and wellbeing of adults in Blacon, after a report by Cheshire West and Chester Council revealed Blacon had the worst health statistics in the whole region.
The grant will be used to fund a 12-month health and wellbeing initiative which will include open days - where adults will be made aware of any health issues they may have - and classes run by health professionals to tackle health problems.
Speaking about the grant, Gordon Cairns, vice chair of Blacon Health and Social Care Group said:
We are thrilled to have been awarded the grant from Equilibrium’s Chester Community Support Scheme. We are determined to improve the lives of adults in Blacon through offering practical help and advice.
We feel incredibly passionate about the wellbeing of people in the area and it is wonderful to have the support of Equilibrium’s scheme.
