Every year TDC supports community organisations to give out small pots of Public Health funding known as the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund.
This funding is a great way for people to develop health and wellbeing related community activities, projects and groups which meet any of the following health priorities:
- Healthy Eating
- Active Living
- Mental Health and Wellbeing
- Ageing Well
- Maintaining health on a low income
- Raising awareness about key health messages (e.g. on smoking, alcohol or sexual health)
TDC administers the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund in the following areas:
Friday 13th Sept – Tarner area, Albion Hill, Carlton Hill, Edward Street, Phoenix Estate,
