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.
