FGCT being considered for Planning for Excellence 2018 Awards

Posted on January 04, 2018

The Royal Town Planning Institute Awards for Planning Excellence are the longest running and most high-profile awards in the industry. In December 2017, FGCT decided to submit an entry under the Health and Wellbeing category believing its project makes a significant contribution to the health and wellbeing of the community and neighbourhoods it serves.

A ‘Healthy City’ is at the heart of the Council’s Plymouth Plan where people live in happy, healthy, safe and aspiring communities. The emerging social prescribing model at the heart of the project is an example of joining up health and wellbeing to create one system that delivers better outcomes for vulnerable adults and children.

The FGCT project is engaged with Primary Care, the voluntary sector and other partners to develop Health & Wellbeing Hubs citywide.
