Belfast Healthy Cities ‘Healthy City’ 2019 awards announced

(via Belfast Healthy Cities)

Belfast Healthy Cities, the World Health Organization initiative in Northern Ireland has launched the ‘Healthy City’ 2019 awards, which recognise the work undertaken by organisations from all sectors towards improving the health and wellbeing of the people of Belfast.

This is the seventh year of the awards, which have attracted a higher number of entries year on year since their 2012 launch. Voluntary and community organisations; public and private sector businesses; statutory and other Government bodies can enter the Healthy City awards.

Belfast Healthy Cities Chief Executive Joan Devlin has encouraged organisations which helps improve the well–being of the citizens of Belfast to apply:

“In the past we have winning entries from organisations which are not typically associated with health promotion or with improving well–being such as the Belfast Giants as well as Health Trusts and voluntary and community based organisations which shows the work going on to promote health and well–being across the city. Our awards showcase those programmes that are striving to improve Belfast as a healthy city.

“I would encourage organisations, whether it is a large public body or a small voluntary and community initiative, to consider making an application in any of our four award categories.”

There are four award categories, Promoting Health Equity; Healthy Places; Healthy Living and Engaging for Change.

Further information on the categories available here.

Please email awards@belfasthealthycities.com or contact Julie McAllister on 028 9032 8811 for an application pack.

The call for entry is open until Monday 28 October.
