SEAL Community Health Project
South East Area Lifestyle Community Health Project aims to reduce inequalities and ensure access to a healthy lifestyle for all residents in the Gorbals and Govanhill area of Glasgow, particularly those on low incomes and those isolated or excluded in the area .
Our grant of £8,000 funded two Fruit Barras for one year which provide good nutritious food, at cost price, directly into deprived areas where shops can be expensive and difficult to reach without transport. Manned by local volunteers, over 500 people use the Fruit Barras which provide a vibrant place for local people to gather and interact. As well as encouraging a healthy lifestyle, the Barras have improved overall social and community engagement.
