The CHEST project aims to improve health and wellbeing of people by
- reducing levels of obesity (as well as the risk of chronic illnesses like coronary heart disease, stroke and diabetes)
- improving confidence to access public health service provision
- promoting healthy lifestyle changes through preventative health education programmes
- developing a network of CHEST health groups that can undertake social action, strengthen social capital and contribute to other public health goals.
We have secured Big Lottery Funding (2012-2017) from the Reaching Communities programme to build on our successful first project offering health education to adults from a wide range of backgrounds in Stoke-on-Trent.
