Welcome to the latest edition of our programme round-up covering new and ongoing projects across our urban health programmes. As we move into the new school year, we are continuing to deliver at a local and national level across our programmes.
The COVID pandemic has exposed how inequality in society leads to inequality in the length and quality of our lives. The disease discriminates based on where you live, where you work, and the colour of your skin. And, as the economic consequences of the crisis hit, as jobs and livelihoods are lost, those inequalities will worsen with profound implications for our health far beyond COVID itself.
Our programmes exist to tackle these health inequalities. We're proud to be working with great partners to find practical ways to break the link between how much someone has and how healthy they are.
Over the last two months we have continued to grow our portfolio and have been looking at ways we can maximise our impact in closing the childhood obesity inequality gap.
