In 2022, Torus Foundation launched the Healthy Neighbours projects across Torus neighbourhoods in Liverpool, St Helens and Warrington, commissioning local organisations (highlighted below) to help to deliver targeted activities to tackle local health issues.
Each area has a dedicated Volunteer Co-cordinator and volunteers who are helping to encourage community members to take part in a range of activities. The various sessions and support provided aim to work towards improving health and wellbeing against an agreed set of health indicators, which could include food poverty, loneliness, obesity, physical inactivity and mental health.

In April 2023, Torus Foundation was delighted to receive news that the National Lottery was awarding almost £500,000 to help continue the work of the Healthy Neighbours Project for another two years. This is down to the positive impact already being made by the project partners and community members engaging in the various activities and sessions taking place across Torus neighbouroods.
Thank you to everyone who helped get this fantastic recognition.
