Tackling health inequalities

HealthControl Community Interest Company (CIC) exists to tackle health inequalities across South East Wales. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities in the area. It does this by running a society lottery and working collaboratively with independent charity, People's Health Trust to develop local interventions.

We donate the good causes funds we raise to People's Health Trust, who invests these in communities wishing to make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.

This grant making trust funds local people who have great ideas about how they can make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.

The Dusty Shed

The Dusty Shed in Cardiff were awarded £19,876. This new two-year project will see the establishment of Cardiff's first Men's Shed and will provide wood working facilities for older men in the Ely district of Cardiff. The Dusty Shed will partner with existing community organisations such as a local time bank, with the aim of also helping younger people gain practical experience in trades such as carpentry.
