Green and Healthy Future - Working in Partnership
We believe that healthy people and a healthy planet are interlinked, and that by working together as a community we can create a greener, healthier future for everyone in Frome.
This is a far-reaching, two year project, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and their dedicated Climate Action Fund.
How will the partnership work?
Each of the partners will have a slightly different role and focus in the project, including:
Frome Medical Practice
We will employ a Green Health Connector, who will coordinate a Green Community Connector programme. This will help local people connect to green health opportunities across our town and a 'Choosing Wisely' campaign will help patients to make informed, green choices about prescriptions.
Edventure Frome CIC will focus on coordinating the partnership and organising weekly events across town, including both practical activities, as well as start-up support for residents, groups and organisations to develop climate and health projects.
Frome Town Council
Frome Town Council will organise a Healthy Homes and Cycling by Prescription project, giving residents the opportunity to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and the chance to try out an electric bike for a month.
