To improve the health and well-being of the community
With the increasing levels of obesity in adults and children in England and with an estimated 21% of adults in Trafford being obese, we are committed to developing and delivering programmes that will make a difference to the health and well-being of our local community and wider region. All our programmes are aimed at encouraging more people to be physically active and to adopt healthier lifestyles.
We are launching a number of programmes around healthy eating, cricket and other sports/dance sessions and we will also be launching a programme that will use the power of cricket/sport as a positive vehicle to address a number of different issues relating to mental illnesses and the stigmas associated with these.
In May 2012 the LCCC Foundation were awarded funds from The Big Lottery, to set up a health project for local people.
During the cricket season we will be working with a cohort of volunteers to coordinate a series of health initiatives at the home games of Lancashire Cricket Club.So please look out of for the ‘Health Leaders’ who will be handing out information, sign posting for further guidance and providing interactive fun along the way!
Local families will also be getting in on the action as they take part in weekly workshops that look at healthy lifestyles and cooking.
Families will be invited to Old Trafford to be educated about good and bad fats and how to create healthy low fat and low cost options for the family. The sessions will also incorporate talks from the clubs nutrition experts, tours of the stadium, cricket coaching and a chance to cook at The Point!
