Reducing health inequality

Healthy Norwich’s overall goal is to improve the health and wellbeing of all Norwich residents, with a particular focus on addressing health inequality.

Healthy Norwich is working closely with Norwich City Council to develop a locality based health inequality project in the Lakenham ward. A work stream of the project will be to deliver healthy lifestyle messages and support to vulnerable people. In particular, Healthy Norwich supported a food programme delivered for families of local primary school and a project based on a ‘social prescribing’ model linked to a GP surgery.
