Wester Hailes Healthy Living Centre (HLC) Television and Art Exhibition Equipment

Organisation : Wester Hailes Healthy Living Centre
Grant Amount : £ 1,000
Project Dates : September 2015 to June 2016

‘Living Well Wester Hailes’ is an integrative cross-agency project aligning interventions across local NHS, GP, Third Sector & Council Services in an area of social deprivation. We seek funding to contribute to the purchase of large TV monitors to broadcast community health promotional material in the Healthy Living Centre. Monitors will broadcast to a captive audience.

Content would reinforce & normalise our current initiatives, eg breastfeeding, smoking cessation, parenting skills. Content for TVs will be produced locally, co-ordinated by our local Health Agency. We also wish to purchase display materials to be used for health promotion and health-related art exhibitions in the HLC, including work created by patients.

Regular exhibitions would explore themes of wellness & promoting positive mental health for both creators & viewers.
