Project celebrates £500,000 for healthier lives
A KNOWLE West project is celebrating after receiving almost half a million pounds to help people in south Bristol to live healthier lives.
Support, therapies and classes for families in the area delivered through the Healthy Living Centre at Knowle West Health Park will benefit from the £496,331 over the next three years through the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.
It will support the Focus on Families Project, which helps families in Knowle West and other areas affected by health inequalities through parenting classes, play therapy, family therapy and one to one support for both men and women.
The project, which stared in February 2010 and has already been supported by Lottery funding, has already worked with more than 1,000 people to help make changes to their lives and will now be able to expand to help more families.

Chief executive of the Knowle West Health Park Company, Vicki Morris, said: "We have found the project has been very successful and this is a terrific pat on the back for the hard work over the last three years."
The extra funding will help support a new project for men who have been sexually abused. It will also be used for work on parenting support at the children's centres in the area.
