Tackling health inequalities
Health Lottery West Midlands exists to tackle health inequalities across its region. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities across its region. It does this by running a society lottery and working collaboratively with independent charity, People's Health Trust, to develop local interventions.
We donate the good causes funds we raise to People's Health Trust, who invests these in communities wishing to make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.
This grant making trust funds local people who have great ideas about how they can make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.

Bell Green Silver Surfers were awarded £12,191 to deliver weekly IT sessions for people aged over 60 at the Bell Green Community Centre, Coventry, so that they are able to keep connected with friends, family and events online, and stay active in the local community.
The project will enable older people in the area to socialise and engage with other local services outside the sessions utilising the IT skills that they learn.
