Wales – Valleys Regional Park 

Projects and programmes addressing underlying differences in health with some health involvement

This is an extensive regeneration programme of a former coal-mining region incorporating some of the most deprived areas in Wales in South Wales receiving support through the ERDF (21.7 million Euros)  The Programme  aims to transform this area into a visitor destination, and a prime location to live and work due to the high quality environment and opportunities for outdoor recreation, heritage and environmental interpretation. The sponsors included nine local authorities together with environmental bodies and charities. As part of the implementation of the wider Valleys Regional Park plan, an ongoing subgroup on ‘health and well being’ was set up, aimed at maximising health gain from the various constituent projects and encouraging local residents to access the facilities and activities available.
