The Prime Minister said, “Congratulations to the Altogether Better programme and their fantastic team of Community Health Champions. This innovative scheme shows the public sector empowering local champions so that they can in turn inspire and support others within their communities to lead healthier lives.  It is an excellent example of a project encouraging social action and opening up our public services. That’s exactly what the Big Society is about – and that’s why I wish them every success for the future.”
