Examples of Previous Health and Wellbeing Projects in Lambeth

There is no set definition of health and wellbeing. Any project that can deliver and demonstrate activities that improve people’s health and wellbeing will be considered. This includes projects that address the social, cultural and underlying factors affecting health. Here are actual examples of Health and Wellbeing projects previously funded by Lambeth elsewhere in the borough:

  • Creating a community club for older and isolated residents on a housing estate, including cookery classes, gardening and other activities, to connect people and improve wellbeing.

  • Weekly sports sessions for vulnerable adults with mental health or complex care needs.

  • Arts and crafts and creative writing projects reaching older people.

  • An intergenerational oral history recording and food project and associated community cooking events reaching people primarily with mental and physical health challenges.
