Updates from our partners in Bath & North East Somerset
Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire are working together as a Sustainable Transformation Partnership (STP) to improve the health and wellbeing of the population. One of the areas of focus within the partnership is to look at ways to increase the uptake of flu vaccinations amongst people with long term health conditions, particularly those under 65 years old.
They are keen to better understand what may prevent or encourage this population from getting the flu vaccination so they can develop ways to promote the vaccine and make it easier to obtain. They would be very grateful if 3SG members could kindly complete this short questionnaire. This is an anonymous questionnaire and the data will not be linked to any individual. They will be collecting responses until 30th September 2018: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YWL2BL8

FareShare South Westis a Bristol based charity which takes surplus food from the food industry and redistributes it to over 150 members across the South West. Their members in turn transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people for a fraction of the cost. They take wholesale quantities of food from the big food retailers, store it in their Bristol warehouse, and redistribute it across the region with the help of an army of volunteers. They stock everything from meat to cheese and from baked beans to fresh fruit, all good quality and in-date.
FareShare South West is currently able to support new members- large and small! They are members of the BANES 3rd Sector Group and keen to speak with other 3SG members who could use their food. Please get in touch with Phoebe Ruxton via email@example.com, or call 0117 954 2220.
