As part of their Health Equalities programme, The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded £700,000 to support local areas to develop effective and sustainable partnerships between the voluntary and community sector, the NHS and local authorities to improve health and wellbeing, reduce health inequalities and empower communities.
These partnerships have the potential to bring about significant change, promoting the role of the voluntary sector and the value of cross-sector partnerships.
The National Lottery Community Fund and the Innovation Unit are working together to connect and convene the Health Equality partnerships to generate and share learning, and communicate this learning to wider audiences.
By sharing learning and insights relating to tackling health inequalities, we aim to support partnerships to build a legacy beyond their National Lottery funding and point towards longer-term systems change.
This document captures insights from the first and second learning event; more products and information will be available here as we progress through the programme and accumulate more learning.
