About the programme:
Islington and Camden Councils are part of a UK-wide cohort that was successful in securing joint funding from The National Trust and The National Heritage Lottery Fund with support from the government. The joint aim across both councils is for parks and green spaces to improve health and wellbeing by developing closer links to the NHS, health providers, doctors and health charities. This is the first time in the UK that a programme of this scale and ambition has been attempted for urban green spaces across entire towns and cities.
