Did you know…?
The poorer you are, the more likely you are to die younger
The poorest people are likely to die 7 years earlier than the majority of the population
They are likely to experience additional disabilities for 20 years more than the majority of the population


Are you looking for funding for a new project that has a direct benefit in areas of social and economic disadvantage in very specific parts of Bracknell and Wokingham?
Once again this year involve Community Services are working with The Peoples Health Trust to find  five organisations who are looking for funding with their projects.

Ideas for projects could be:
– A group for local older and younger people to get together in a local area and do activities together (e.g. craft, technology, history)

– A group for adults to learn English and enterprise skills

– A community cafe created and run by single parents as a space to meet, seek support and socialise
