    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We are transforming health and social care through empowering individuals to use their community for support

    ‘I had no idea about what was going on in my community and what social activities are here.'

    Within this statement there are two challenges:

    1. The core, sociocultural challenge that people now live in areas where they do not know their community and feel lonely with no sense of belonging.

    2. The secondary challenge that people are unable to locate a certain service in their community which they need to improve their health/wellbeing.

    The first challenge is leading to a lack of social networks and support, resulting n chronic loneliness which is associated with long-term damage to physiological health from raised stress hormones, poorer immune function and cardiovascular health. Loneliness also makes it harder to self-regulate behaviour and build willpower and resilience over time, leading to engagement in unhealthy behaviours.

    If we address challenge 1 then challenge 2 will follow and we will implement true prevention.

    Currently, medicine is largely based around a culture of physical examination and prescription, but there is more to the human body than that, and different factors work together to create health and wellbeing.

    We must change this, we must give some power back to individuals and communities, this will improve the wellbeing of our population and make our country better
