‘There are many organisations, large and small, across the city who work hard to make life healthier and fairer for our communities. It is very important that this work is valued and recognised and these awards are an important way to do that.
The awards highlight that better health and wellbeing can make real improvements for people and for the city as a whole. I would encourage any organisation, whether it is a large public body or a small community initiative, to consider making an application.’  Read full press release
