The Green Dreams Project partnered with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, Health Improvement Service in March 2012.
The project was successful in attracting funding from NHS East Lancashire for a twelve month pilot to establish if the model can be replicated within further General Practices across East Lancashire.
The Green Dreams Project provides local, community-based solutions in East Lancashire to unemployment, isolation and reduced quality of life.
It prioritises individuals whom other agencies have been unable to help. The unique approach comprises:
- Tailored coordinated care
- Marrying health needs with social needs
- The creation of meaningful group activities
