The HLC is committed to tackling health and wellbeing inequalities in the local community and Buckinghamshire area. We run different projects, which allow us to listen to the local people and wider community and put in place different projects to help answer their needs.
Building futures project
Our employment advisors work with and support people in the local community (and across Buckinghamshire) to create life changing opportunities for them, helping them into sustainable employment and into career furthering education and training opportunities. We offer one to one advice and guidance and support people by guiding people into making practical steps and decisions that ultimately result in a better and positive quality of life. We source local partners, organisations and employers willing to provide and/or create opportunities that effectively improve and develop participants life skills and knowledge. This project has been running for a good number of years with quantifiable success rates of admission into training/educational institutions and make entries into work.
Healthy Living and Healthy Eating
A three-phase project promoting Healthy Living and Healthy Eating covering the following areas:
Summer Launch Event | Planting and growing | Healthy eating workshop
A programme of activities to promote “grow your vegetables and learn to cook with them” project. This promotes the core values of the Healthy Living Centre and combines with our working partnership with Aylesbury Garden Town to promote and support healthy living. We already have a project in place with Aylesbury Garden Town to create a Community Garden in Walton Court.
