Healthy Futures

The Guardian Public Service Awards 2016 Winner

Through our Healthy Futures project, we help people to improve their overall health and quality of life.

The project was originally funded by the Department of Health’s Homeless Hospital Discharge Fund and then by the Clinical Commissioning Groups and local authorities in Derbyshire.

The Benefits of Healthy Futures

Better health

We help people use health services more effectively by providing personalised support. We also work closely with health and community services, helping people to better manage their long-term health conditions.

Better housing

We find accommodation for people with no suitable housing, and then provide ongoing support to help them live independently and maintain their accommodation.

Better use of resources

Healthy Futures improves the coordination of social services, treatment services, housing and support, and reduces chaotic inappropriate use of health services.

Who is Healthy Futures for?

We are currently taking referrals for people with a local connection to Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire or Bolsover who are in hospital.

Referrals are usually made by hospital staff. If you would like more information please email
