Thank you to Doris Field Charitable Trust and to Oxford Health Charity

We are very grateful for the funding we have from Doris Field Charitable Trust and from the Oxford Health Charity.  We currently have funding which should last for about two years which will enable us to show whether our approach to health and wellbeing works and could therefore be extended to other towns.
