The Orion consortium has been successful in securing £347,000 per year for the next three years from Leeds City Council Public Health to provide a Locality Community Health Development and Information Service known as Better Together.

The partners consisting of Feel Good Factor (lead and accountable body), Space2, Zest – Health for Life, Shantona and Touchstone will work seamlessly and collaboratively across East North East Leeds. Collectively the consortium has over 70 years’ experience of using person centred and community centred approaches; engaging, informing, inspiring, connecting and empowering people to take positive actions to transform their health and wellbeing.

The focus is to address the impact of the wider determinants of health and all activities delivered will directly contribute to at least one of the four key outcomes of the service which are to:

• Build social capital
• Increase resilience/reduce dependency
• Reduce health inequalities
• Promote healthier lifestyles
