WHY DO WE DO WHAT WE DO?

BECAUSE PEOPLE MATTER...

Many of our communities suffer from significant levels of avoidable ill-health. These include Obesity, Diabetes, Cancers, Stroke, Hypertension, Heart Disease, Anxiety, Depression, Stress and Dementia. Parks, Open Spaces and the wider natural environment are Health Assets, and can contribute to the prevention and treatment of these conditions. In addition they can mitigate environmental risk factors; air pollution, noise, UV radiation and flooding, which also contribute to ill-health. 

 

Our Mission

Our Mission is to  contribute to the creation of healthy communities by improving the health status of spaces in the urban and rural environment.


A city of well-connected, attractive green spaces, that offer safe opportunities for urban residents for active mobility and sports as well as for stress recovery, recreation and social contact, is likely to be more resilient to extreme environmental events…Such a city is also likely to have healthier citizens, reducing demands on health services and contributing to a stronger economy.
