Join us for lunch and a conversation about Equally Well – North Tyneside’s Health Inequalities Strategy and Implementation Plan.
Cedarwood Trust is gathering views and feedback.
North Tyneside’s Equally Well strategy sets out a high level plan to tackle health inequalities in North Tyneside between 2021 and 2025.
Health inequalities are the unfair and avoidable differences in health across the population and between different groups within society.
These differences are unfair because they are not random or by chance but largely socially determined, and they are not inevitable.
For example – people from North Tyneside’s most deprived areas live shorter lives compared to residents from our least deprived areas – men live 11.7 years less and women live 10.6 years less.
The strategy aims to:
Reduce inequalities by breaking the link between people’s circumstances and their opportunities for a healthy, thriving and fulfilled life.
There are 7 key themes within the strategy:
6th July - 12pm to 1pm (Book Now)
Giving every child the best start in life / enable all children, young people and adults to maximise their capabilities and have control over their lives
7th July - 12pm to 1pm (Book Now)
Ensure a healthy standard of living for all / an integrated health and care system

Our cookery course with Lee went well this afternoon! Great to see people wanting to learn new and healthy cookery skills alongside gaining a level 2 food hygiene qualification.
Well done to our learners Leah and Michelle from Cambois Primary School who have completed their Step-Up Into Care courses. 👏🏻
BIG THANK YOU to Norham High School ARP for their amazing donation of Bagels and Cereal to the Cedarwood centre today, totalling over 17kg of food! Keeping our volunteers, Vicki and Mei busy, too!
Great to have a visit from Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland trustees, with Cedarwood Trust's brilliant host CEO Wayne Dobson describing the essential community anchor role on the Meadow Well estate in North Tyneside.
The Nourish Bistro is maintained by a variety of fantastic people at Cedarwood. Consisting of staff, volunteers, kickstart placements and Nurture Academy students. All working together, learning new skills and maintaining a valuable part of the community centre.
Joanne had the pleasure of lighting one of the seven beacons at Segedunum Wallsend, to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee... Seconds before the heavens opened, got drenched! 🌧
Joanne was there flying the flag for Tin On A Wall Campaign - a recipient of a Spirit of North Tyneside Award in January. Tin On A Wall donates between 750kg to a tonne of non-perishable food and products to Cedarwood Trust every month - this is around 20% of the total food collected each month.
We had an incredible turn-out at our Jubilee Garden party yesterday with Meadow Well Connected. Great to see so many residents from the community come along and get involved!
