The Bridge Renewal Trust is a charity based in Tottenham. We were set up in 2009 as a successor body to the Bridge New Deal for Communities (NDC) that led regeneration in Tottenham from 2000 – 2010. Our main purpose is to deliver practical ways that people can live healthier lives – thus playing our part in working towards reducing health inequalities. Our approach includes:
- Supporting people holistically to have the confidence, motivation, skills and knowledge to make their own healthy life choices – and to be able to pass this on in their families and in the community.
- Ensuring people can access the right mix for them of the medical and healthy living support to get and stay well.
- Building sustainability into all our work by operating as a social business. This means adopting the strengths of operating as a sustainable business and adapting these to ensure that ultimately the ‘profits’ are the social benefit of meeting our charitable purpose.
- Working collaboratively and in partnerships to increase the availability of accessible services and support that will enhance the health and wellbeing of local people.
