I passionately believe that a critical way we will to reduce health inequalities is through engaging closely with local communities to support small but significant changes in behaviour to improve health. Organisations like FROG are critical to this – FROG has a real and impressive connection with their community; and quite rightly aspires for the very best for people in their community. It is not quite right to say “organisations like FROG” – there are no other organisations like FROG! Their passion, drive, innovation and enthusiasm is exceptional; coupled with the ability to put these qualities into delivering real, practical programmes for improvement that have engaged their community in delivering tangible change make them unique in my experience in this area.

The Routes to Employment Team work in partner ship with the Wheels Project and have accessed their support on a number of occasions to support the residents of the borough access employment opportunities; we have found that the support available enables residents to access career opportunities they may not have been previously able to consider. The support has also enabled the Routes to Employment team to provide comprehensive package of support which is not available anywhere else in the country. We have been delighted with the project and value its contribution to our support provision. Lesley Pearson, Employment and Apprenticeship Advisor Redcar and Cleveland Council.
