We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live life in the healthiest way, both physically and mentally.
Good health is a basic human need. Healthy people are more productive, happier, and live longer. However, our cities face ongoing health challenges, from mental health problems to lack of access to healthcare
We need to create communities of people that live healthy and balanced lives. Through our initiatives, we are helping changemakers to create solutions that will improve peoples’ mental and physical health.

Our Impact in London
Mission #5: Improving people’s mental health
Strong mental health leads to better physical health, improved outcomes in work, greater economic growth, and reduced levels of poverty. However, 1 in 4 people will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. We want to help reduce this statistic by giving people the opportunity to realise their potential, cope with stress, work productively and make a contribution to their community.
