LCVS attended the recent North West Coast Research and Innovation Awards, as part of the Collaborative Leadership Applied Health Research and Care North West Coast (CLAHRC MWC). The CLAHRC NWC project develops and evaluates neighbourhood resilience interventions to reduce health inequalities, and operates across the North West.
Locally, the project is known as Better Old Swan (BOS) and is working with local residents and wider stakeholders to create change through a range of local activity focused on the High Street, air pollution and traffic.
CLAHRC NWC won the ‘Research for Wellbeing’ Award for the Neighbourhood Resilience Programmes and was also a finalist for ‘Taking Research into Practice’ with the Health Inequalities Assessment Toolkit (HIAT).
Both these awards recognize the strategic collaborations between health research and community activity, and we’re looking forward to seeing how they progress!
