Well-being cash distribution decided

The Big Lottery Fund has revealed how it will distribute its £125m Well-Being programme funding.

The fund has announced that 14 projects across England will benefit from the programme, which was set up to promote healthy eating, physical activity and better mental health.

This will include £73m set aside to launch projects that will improve the health of children, parents and communities, which will be divided amoung five national organisations.

Nine regional bodies will share the remaining £52m, which will be spent on providing regional services to improve mental health, physical activity and healthy minds.

Sir Clive Booth, chair of the Big Lottery Fund, said: “Investment in healthy living and active lifestyles has become more important over the past few years, especially in the context of growing obesity levels and the increase in mental health conditions such as stress, depression and anxiety. The money will go a long way towards improving the life chances of our children.”
