Many factors can impair health and wellbeing including financial security, lack of education, poor employment, housing conditions, discrimination and access to health services. Our aim is to improve health by addressing health and mental health issues through the support of social innovation. Rethink Ireland has invested €15.5 million in health since 2016, supporting 83 innovations in this area and helping us to reach at least 95,000 people.
Over the next three years, we aim to support 50,000 people to improve their physical and mental health. Our capacity-building programmes will enable awardees to prove and improve their vital impact in this area.
