How will Winning Hearts and Minds improve people’s health and wellbeing?

Community led initiatives

The Winning Hearts and Minds programme will work with the local community to offer support and advice that works best for each community. People are at the heart of what we do.

We will create community-focused and culturally relevant campaigns in partnership with the community.
