Broxtowe’s NHS body has issued a £50,000 funding boost to a number of health and wellbeing services.

The Lifestyle Fund, awarded by NHS Nottingham West CCG supports local initiatives to improve health in and around the Broxtowe area.

The fund boosts a variety of wellbeing services, from support for people with dementia and Parkinson’s disease, to Sing & Smile, Monday Movers, and Friday Community Group which provide activities and hot meals to elderly people and those with learning disability who live alone.

Chief clinical officer Dr Guy Mansford said: “These groups are small but make a big difference for those who use them and I’m glad we can support their development in the community.”
