Reducing avoidable inequalities

Wrexham Glyndwr University is a key partner within the 2025 Movement, an innovative movement for change with a collective vision to tackle avoidable health and housing inequalities by 2025 in North Wales.

The movement first came together in 2015, borne from a growing frustration of people trying to work across different organisations and sectors to achieve improved public services in health and housing, with little or varying success. The movement is an informal partnership of key agencies to achieve the best outcomes for people. 

One key are is the Healthy Home Healthy people project. The project is led by Warm Wales and is focused on tackling fuel poverty, reducing avoidable health inequality and improving health and well being.  

Mental health and well-being BSc students support the project by volunteering on work placements, attending home visits and supporting individuals by looking at 4 key areas:

  • Home and Personal/ Family Safety
  • Money Maximisation and Support
  • Affordable Warmth
  • Health and Wellbeing Outcomes

The project engages, encourages, educates and empowers the people who are visited to take control and make changes, and get support where needed. This  innovative community approach  improves health and well being, and tackles health inequality on a regional level.
