Green Dreams Project

Healthy and Sustainable Settings Unit

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
