Tackling health inequalities
Health Lottery South East exists to tackle health inequalities across South East England. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities its region. It does this by running a society lottery and working collaboratively with independent charity, People's Health Trust, to develop local interventions.
We donate the good causes funds we raise to People's Health Trust, who invests these in communities wishing to make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.
This grant making trust funds local people who have great ideas about how they can make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.

Med3 Music in Portsmouth were awarded £10,943 by People’s Health Trust, using money raised through The Health Lottery South East.
This funding has allowed the group to continue to deliver music sessions for people from Portsmouth and surrounding areas who experience enduring mental health problems. The group run a music club for individuals who write their own original material and play instruments and sing. A separate club provides an opportunity for people to take part in playing instruments, singing, listening and supporting each other through music in an informal environment. The project aims to address issues related to social isolation and mental ill health.
Louise Mills from Med3 Music says: ''Thanks to this funding, our music group can support and improve the physical and emotional well-being of local people experiencing enduring mental health problems and help to build confidence, self-esteem and motivation.''
